Distracted Driving Accident


A Recent Testimonial

5 star ratingI was involved in a multiple vehicle crash with complicated injuries, and despite my best efforts could not deal with the insurance companies alone. From the start, Andrew was reassuring, insightful, and determined.  He gently guided me through the litigation process, and sought out new resources to further my recovery. My case took time to build, and while sometimes I felt unsure Andrew never wavered.  In the end, the Traub Law Office secured an amazing settlement for me!  I am so grateful to Andrew, Talia, and Lynne for their kindness and dedication. Now I can move on with my life, and heartily refer anyone who needs a true and accomplished lawyer to Andrew Traub!

Punitive Damages May be Available

A distracted driving accident is completely avoidable, yet occurs far too often. Studies show that drivers who are distracted can be as or more dangerous than drunk drivers.  People reading or sending text messages, browsing the internet, talking on the phone while operating heavy equipment are a threat to everyone on the road.

Distracted Driving Accident – Deadly Consequences

Nationwide, more than 15 people are killed and 1,200 injured every day in accidents involving distracted drivers, according to 2009 figures from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

If you have been injured by a distracted driver or if a family member suffered a wrongful death because someone else made the decision to not pay attention, please contact an Austin accident attorney at The Traub Law Office today for a free initial consultation and case evaluation.

Personal Injury Attorney Andrew Traub says: “A distracted driver’s insurance company may try to make sure your injury claim is as lengthy, complicated, and expensive for you as possible. They may use intimidation to try and convince you not to pursue your claim and to discourage you from seeking the advice of an experienced trial attorney. Insurance companies often deny responsibility, even in cases of clear liability and outrageous conduct while the injured party’s family faces a lifetime of pain, suffering and financial loss. Victims of a distracted driver’s negligence owe it to themselves and to society to hold the distracted driver responsible.”
