These kind of accidents can result in single-vehicle crashes involving pedestrian and bicycle accidents, or multi-vehicle accidents.  These accidents are caused directly by driver negligence and could have been easily prevented. By filing a personal injury claim with the help of an understanding and experienced attorney, you can receive compensation for the physical, emotional, and financial damages you suffered as the result of an accident caused by a distracted driver.
