Distracted Driving Is An Increasingly Dangerous Problem
Protect Your Rights If You Are Injured
Distracted driving is an epidemic in the United States. According to the most recent statistics compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 3,000 individuals were killed in distracted driving accidents in 2011. Nearly 400,000 people were injured in 2011 as well. Numerous studies have shown that sending or reading text messages or emails while driving is as dangerous, or even more dangerous, than driving while intoxicated.
If you have been injured in a texting while driving accident, or if you were injured by a driver talking on his or her cell phone, it is important to work with an attorney who will work tirelessly to hold this driver accountable. At The Goldman Firm, our Atlanta-based law firm serves people throughout Georgia. Our firm is led by Steven I. Goldman, who brings more than a quarter century of experience to every type of motor vehicle accident case.

Providing Tough, Compassionate Legal Representation For The Injured
In accidents caused by distracted drivers, proving the fault of the other driver is rarely a problem. Proving the other driver’s fault, however, is not the only issue in personal injury litigation. The other, crucial part of every case is proving your damages. These damages can include your medical expenses, lost income, property damages and other general damages.
When you work with The Goldman Firm, we will prepare a strong case aimed at helping you recover all appropriate damages. By preparing thoroughly for each case, we are frequently able to settle our clients’ cases on favorable terms. In the event we have to take your case to trial, our preparation puts our clients in the best possible position.
