Texting While Driving

A Dangerous and Deadly Negligent Act

Although state legislators made texting while driving illegal in California, we all know that many people continue to engage in this dangerous and negligent act. We see them on the freeway. It is often assumed that young people are to blame. In fact, people of all ages continue to read and answer text messages while behind the wheel. The length of time it takes to read a message is all it takes to cause a very serious car accident. Rear end accidents and side impact accidents are the common result of a driver who is focused on reading or writing a text rather than driving.

Any impact with another vehicle has the potential for causing serious or permanent injury or death. A rear end accident can mean serious head and brain injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries or severe soft tissue injuries.

Who We Are

Our founding attorney, Paul Overett, has a professional approach in all cases he takes on. He knows thoroughly that the insurance companies often do not care about the injured person. These companies are profit-motivated and if they can pay you nothing, or pay you less, they will. Some of their common tactics include denying claims, lowball settlement offers, and making it very, very difficult for an injured person to try to settle a claim on their own. Many people have tried and in frustration, have either given up, or finally accepted a settlement that didn't even cover their medical bills. This is not justice. At our firm, we take the stress and worry off your plate and we move forward with effective actions to seek full compensation. We have a 100% success rate. Why? We know how to get results, and we care enough to go the distance for our clients.
