Texting While Driving and Other Distractions

Cellphone use is the most common form of distracted driving. In addition to texting and talking on the phone, however, there are many ways a driver can become distracted. Our lawyers have extensive experience handling distracted driving cases involving a driver:

  • Changing GPS settings or other dashboard settings
  • Checking email
  • Using a tablet, laptop or other mobile devices
  • Changing a CD or radio station
  • Putting on makeup or eating while driving
  • Turning to speak to a passenger or child in the backseat

Evidence can disappear quickly after an accident. It is important to work with a lawyer who can interview witnesses, review police reports and collect other key evidence as soon as possible to prove distracted driving caused your accident. Our lawyers are skilled investigators who can provide you with the support, advice and representation you need at every stage of your case.

Mr. Yegendorf is very different than the stereotypical lawyer. He is sympathetic to his clients and eager to help. Probably one of the most ethical, professional and experienced lawyers out there. Highly recommended!

I can not express my warmest wishes to Howard Yagendorf and his amazing team. I had a great experience working with them and I'm so thankful to his expertise and help in my difficult situation. He guided me and my family through the process and helped us to get the outcome we've never hope about. Great people, great team and overall experience was easy and worry free. Thank you so much.

Howard is an excellent, meticulous lawyer. Perhaps even more important though, is that he is a compassionate human being. A very good listener and an even better questioner!

I have known Howard for nearly 20 years. During that time he not only helped me with sound, expert advice pertaining to a "Ponzi scheme" that devastated my family, he has helped countless others. He is dedicated to the law and a true expert in his field. I know first hand that he has changed the destiny of many of his clients , allowing them to move forward with dignity after suffering catastrophic events. He cares deeply , has dogged determination, vast experience and his team of lawyers and support staff are second to none. I would highly recommend Howard and his team.

I've known Howard Yegendorf for well over a decade and consider him to be one of the most capable, professional, knowledgeable and trustworthy people I've met in my business career. His attention, compassion and skills were reinforced to me when he helped a very close family member with a potentially serious legal situation. Without hesitation I will continue to recommend Howard and his firm to anyone who wants exceptional legal representation.
