Distracted driving accidents killed 3,092 people in 2010 according to the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT). Additionally, it is estimated that 18 percent of auto accidents that year involved distracted drivers.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after an auto accident involving a distracted driver enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an automobile accident involving a distracted driver in Clayton County you should discuss your case with an auto accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

A major telecommunications company agreed to pay $3 million to a nurse who suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) when she was rear-ended by a company bucket truck. According to the lawsuit, the truck driver was checking for messages on his company phone while on hold with a customer on his personal cell phone when the accident occurred. The bucket truck rear-ended the nurse's parked car while she sat inside.

Medical records indicated that the nurse suffered a TBI that impaired her memory and cognitive functioning. She also suffered serious neck injuries and a herniated disc in her back. Medical experts for the prosecution testified that the nurse's injuries ended her 30-year career.

If you or someone you know has been hurt by a distracted driver, meet with a Clayton County auto accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.
