Distracted Driving Accidents
When a distracted driver injures or kills an innocent person, people get angry. This is why we have a civil justice system: to hold careless people financially responsible for the damage they cause.
At Godosky & Gentile, our lawyers represent people in the New York City area who are injured by people who text, talk on hand-held cellphones or surf the internet while driving. We represent people in other vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists as well as passengers who were in the same vehicle as the distracted driver. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. Call 212-742-9700 to schedule a meeting in our office or a location that is convenient to you.
New York’s distracted driving laws are among the toughest in the nation. In New York, it is illegal to:
- Send or receive text messages while driving
- Use a hand-held cellphone while driving
Police can stop anyone they observe violating these laws. Violators are subject to fines, points on their driving record and possible driver’s license suspension. In addition, our lawyers can use the civil justice system to hold the distracted driver and his or her insurance company financially responsible for the damages you have suffered. Examples of damages include past and future medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
