Cellphones. MP3 players. Video games. The list of items that can distract drivers from paying attention to the road seems to grow longer every day. At Bordas & Bordas, our lawyers take action against negligent drivers who take their eyes of the road and cause serious motor vehicle accidents. We have decades of experience holding negligent drivers accountable in West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Investigation of Auto Accidents
Whether we are handling a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, bicycle accident or pedestrian accident, it has become commonplace for us to immediately seek out the negligent driver's cellphone records. Not surprisingly, we often find evidence that indicates he or she was talking or sending text messages on the cellphone at the time of the accident. This is clear evidence of negligence and a critical part of our personal injury or wrongful death case.
Our investigation is thorough. If there was a digital music player or video game in the negligent driver's car, we will find it. Even things like open makeup bags or half-eaten food on the passenger seat may be evidence that the negligent driver was not focused on the road. We will interview witnesses as necessary, building a case with the strength to succeed. This approach has led to our impressive record of verdicts and settlements.
Punitive Damages and Reckless Driving
If we find evidence of reckless driving, we may pursue punitive damages. These are damages above and beyond medical bills, lost wages and other costs. They are intended to punish the wrongdoer and deter others from taking the same careless actions.
