There are few activities more reckless than reading and sending text messages while driving in one of the most congested urban environments in the world. Unfortunately, some drivers do just that, putting themselves, their passengers, pedestrians and other drivers at risk.
If you have been injured in an accident caused by a texting driver, contact the New York City attorneys at Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP. For more than 25 years, we have aggressively represented our clients’ interests to ensure that they have obtained the medical care they need and monetary compensation they deserve — and we have the track record to prove it.
New York Texting While Driving Laws
In New York, it is illegal to send or read text messages while operating a motor vehicle. If you retain our law firm to represent you, our lawyers can obtain cellphone records of the other driver to determine if he or she was texting at the time of the accident. If we can show that the other driver was distracted by cellphone use, your case will become a lot stronger.
You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages even if you were a passenger in the vehicle operated by the texting driver.
Our attorneys have recovered tens of millions of dollars for our injured clients. We handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, which means there are no fees unless we obtain compensation for you.
