Bachus & Schanker, LLC Observes National Distracted Driver Awareness Month
The attorneys of Bachus & Schanker, LLC are well aware of the havoc wrought at the hands of distracted drivers each year in Colorado and throughout the nation. On many occasions we have been called upon to represent the victims of accidents caused by distracted drivers.
Because of our extensive experience serving the victims of distracted drivers, we proudly join lawmakers and citizens all across the country in observing April as National Distracted Driver Awareness Month.
In Colorado it is illegal for teenagers to use a cell phone in any way behind the wheel and for adults to text while driving. However, our hope during this month-long observation is to not only call attention to the distraction of cell phone use, but also to bring to mind the carnage brought about by drivers eating, drinking, grooming themselves, using GPS, reading maps, tuning a radio and watching videos behind the wheel of a car. Like talking on the cell phone or texting, these seemingly harmless activities can be deadly.
Recognizing and eliminating dangerous distracted driving practices can save lives and prevent needless heartache for Colorado families.
If you or anyone in your family has been injured in an accident involving a distracted driver, we encourage you to contact the attorneys at Bachus & Schanker, LLC. We are experienced in helping victims of distracted drivers obtain all the compensation for which they are eligible.
