We Will Determine How the Driver Who Injured You Drove While Distracted
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are three main types of distraction:
- Visual: takes your eyes off the road
- Manual: takes your hands off the wheel
- Cognitive: takes your mind off driving
Examples of distracted driving include:
- Programming navigational or music devices
- Eating or drinking behind the wheel
- Applying makeup
- Texting or smartphone use
The CDC reports that texting behind the wheel involves all three forms of distraction. A survey by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety also demonstrates that most drivers understand the danger of distracted driving, yet many participate.
AAA adds that those who text behind the wheel are up to eight times more likely to become involved in a crash. If another driver did not wait to read or to send a text, resulting in serious injuries for you, contact Bressman Law today. Your Cincinnati distracted driving accident lawyer will work to establish and prove how the other driver was distracted at the time of your accident.
You have nothing to lose, seeing as we do not charge you until your case is successful. To learn more, call us now: (614) 538-1116.

What to Do if Your Loved One Died Due to a Distracted Driving Accident
Losing a loved one due to a distracted driver is heartbreaking and infuriating. Your unexpected loss requires the sudden expense of a funeral and may result in the loss of income, as well.
These are two examples of the types of compensation possible in a wrongful death lawsuit. Another type of possible compensation is the loss of companionship.
It is often difficult to assign a dollar value to the loss of your loved one. While medical bills and other expenses often involve a specific dollar amount, estimating the loss of companionship is more difficult.
The team at Bressman Law understands how to convey such losses to insurance companies and jurors. While we work hard to settle your case out of court, if we are unable to reach a fair settlement, we have no problem going to trial.
Your loss can never be replaced by money. However, any possible award for damages can help ease your financial stress and hold the responsible driver accountable for your loss.

Insurance Company Tactics We Know How to Navigate
Experiencing a serious injury due to a distracted driver leaves you in pain and in some cases, heavily medicated. You may feel confused and overwhelmed by your situation.
You are most vulnerable at this time and many insurance companies realize this. They may use this time to offer you a settlement that may appeal to you in your current state. The amount of this settlement may be a low-dollar sum that might not cover your expenses now and in the future.
It is important to not accept their offer, but rather to secure legal representation instead. At Bressman Law, we are aware of the tactics insurance companies use to try to pressure accident victims into accepting less than they deserve. This is also true for families who suffered a loss.
If you accept the insurance company’s offer, you may lose the right to civil action later, should your medical condition worsen. Protect your interests by referring insurance companies to your personal injury lawyer.
Let Bressman Law Help You on the Road to Justice
An Ohio driver’s license is not a right, but rather, a privilege. When a driver engages in any behavior or actions that distracts them, they place themselves and other drivers at risk for serious harm.
You must act quickly when it comes to filing a civil lawsuit. The statute of limitations may expire, leaving you with few legal options. The more time we have to review evidence associated with your case, the sooner we can prepare your case for a possible trial.
