We hear a lot about the dangers of distracted driving. However, unless you are an injury lawyer you are unlikely to realize see the amount of damage and misery it can cause.
Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers recently settled a case with a Kait Robertson, a 27-year-old woman from Virginia Beach who was injured when she was rear-ended by a distracted driver.
Kait was injured in Virginia Beach by a driver who was texting in April 2013. She sustained back injuries, a minor concussion and a finger injury.
In this video she describes how she found Cooper Hurley online. “Their services are fantastic. They are very responsive and knowledgeable and helpful to any questions that I had,” she said.
She also praised her attorney John Cooper. “You can tell he’s a family man. He made me feel very comfortable through the entire process of investigating what happened in the accident and my injuries,” she said.
Kait sought out the services of an injury lawyer after the insurance company of the driver who hit her offered a minor fee that did not even amount to what she already owed in medical expenses.
“I am very pleased with my final settlement. It’s more than I can ever imagine getting without John Cooper’s Help and the help of his staff,” she said.
Every year more than 3,300 motorists are killed by drivers who are texting or distracted in other ways, according to Distraction.gov.
“The number of people killed in distraction-affected crashes fell slightly from 3,360 in 2011 to 3,328 in 2012. About 421,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver, a nine percent increase from the estimated 387,000 people injured in 2011.
