The California Highway Patrol designated April as Distracted Driving Awareness Month and the month is almost over. The problem isn’t over… just the month. Further, the problem has become even worse this month and overall is getting worse, not better.
Our Senior Partner was riding with someone to a meeting recently and observed the driver next to him doing something incredibly dangerous. This person was reading a full size book in heavy traffic at 45 miles per hour while holding the book on the steering wheel partially obscuring her view of the road. Many think distracted driving is limited to cell phones and that’s not true! The initial laws were written to address eating while driving. The reality is ANYTHING diverting your attention from driving should be discouraged.
There’s a new designation called “Phone Zombies”. A “Phone Zombie” is anyone tuning out the world and walking while texting. This is commonplace in parking lots, school campuses and most anyplace else they can possibly text. They walk into ponds, into signs, into lanes of traffic and even off cliffs! There is a video on the gblegal facebook page showing this and its both funny and sad at the same time. We have clients we currently represent who were injured because someone thought it was more important to text than pay attention to their driving. We are helping them and if this has happened to you we can help you!
We represent people who are injured because of the careless and reckless acts of others. At the end of the day your case can only be settled one time and you need to know all of the facts beforehand. The reason that insurance companies have paid our clients in excess of $130,000,000.00 is that we get the facts and are not intimidated at the prospect of going to trial when they refuse to follow the law. We help with serious issues that require serious representation. We are the Law Offices of Guenard & Bozarth. We have over 80 years of experience in our plaintiff’s only law firm.
