Distracted Driving Accidents

Nassau County Attorneys Standing Up For You When You Have Been Injured By Distracted Drivers

If another driver was texting, calling or otherwise distracted because of cellphone use, he or she may be legally liable for your damages, including medical expenses, lost income and, in tragic cases of fatality, funeral expenses. It can often be difficult to prove that the other driver was using a cellphone or distracted driving in any form.

The experienced car accident lawyers of Edelman, Krasin & Jaye, PLLC, in Nassau County can prove liability in texting and other distracted driving accidents across Long Island and New York City in several ways. Our team of attorneys may obtain cellphone records from the other driver by issuing a subpoena during the discovery process. We can scour police records, which may show illegal cellphone use at the time of the car accident. And we may locate and question witnesses, who may have seen the driver using a cellphone. These types of evidence can be used to show that the other driver should be held liable for compensatory damages as a result of the distracted driving accident.
