Representing The Victims Of Distracted Drivers

Florida has one of the weakest distracted driving laws in the nation. While many states have banned use of hand-held cellphones while driving, in Florida it is perfectly legal. While texting and driving is banned, the law is so weak that police cannot stop violators unless they are committing a second infraction, such as speeding.

Where the criminal justice system has failed to hold distracted drivers accountable, the civil justice system can succeed. At Dolan Dobrinsky Rosenblum, LLP in Miami, our attorneys file personal injury lawsuits against distracted drivers who injure innocent people. We also represent family members in cases of fatal accidents caused by distracted drivers. We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars of compensation for our clients throughout South and Central Florida.

Holding Distracted Drivers Responsible

The most common distraction for drivers in Florida is use of smartphones. Even if use of a smartphone while driving is not illegal, it can still provide evidence of negligence in a personal injury or wrongful death case. Jurors do not like it when drivers talking on a smartphone or surfing the Internet while driving injure or kill innocent people. Cellphone records can show what a person was doing in the moments before a crash.

Looking away from the road for just a second can have devastating consequences for pedestrians or other drivers. It can lead to:

  • Rear-end collisions when the distracted driver fails to see that traffic has slowed
  • Head-on collisions when the driver drifts into the wrong lane
  • Intersection accidents when the driver fails to stop at a stop sign or stoplight
  • Crosswalk accidents when the driver fails to see a pedestrian crossing the street

Our attorneys will work with experts to assess the true cost of an accident, including past and future medical expenses, disability, lost wages, pain and suffering, and diminished quality of life. Then we will pursue full compensation from the distracted driver and his or her insurance company.
