Ohio Firm Defends Clients in Accidents Alleging Distracted Driving

Skilled litigators represent people in the Youngstown area accused of causing a crash

If you have been involved in a vehicle accident, you may find yourself accused of driving while distracted. If you are found to have caused the crash because you weren't paying attention to the road, you may be liable for the medical bills and other damages suffered by those involved in the accident. Drivers involved in a car, motorcycle, truck or pedestrian-related accident need an experienced personal injury defense attorney who will represent their interests. At DeGenova & Yarwood, Ltd., we defend drivers in the Youngstown area and throughout Ohio against civil suits alleging distracted driving. We provide the advice and advocacy our clients need to prevail.

Proven advocates understand the hazards of distracted driving

Many states regulate the use of cellphones and other electronic devices by drivers because phone calls and text messages take a driver's mind and eyes off the road. Any distraction can be enough to cause an accident. In addition to cellphones, other distractions include:

  • Passengers
  • GPS systems
  • Food and drink
  • Makeup
  • Car radios
  • CB radios

After an accident, our attorneys will undertake a thorough investigation to challenge claims that you were distracted at the time of the crash and limit your liability for damages in a personal injury suit.

Experienced counselors call on experts to bolster your defense

Our firm maintains a close professional relationship with top trauma doctors, chiropractors, forensics engineers, mechanics and collision reconstruction analysts and regularly consults these experts to present a strong defense in your personal injury suit. At trial, these experts can deliver compelling testimony to help jurors understand the real cause of the accident as well as the true nature and extent of alleged injuries.

Dedicated lawyers provide a strong defense in court and settlement negotiations

Consulting an attorney immediately following an auto accident is essential to the preservation of crucial evidence and witness testimony. While your insurance company may claim they will defend you, their interests may be different from yours. We represent your interests and will work to defend you from liability.
