Devastating Effects of Distracted Driving

In 2012 alone, 3,328 individuals lost their lives in distracted driving-related accidents. The U.S. Department of Transportation has made efforts to eliminate the use of cell phones and texting behind the wheel since 2009. States have been urged to adopt strict laws to bring an end to these catastrophes and to raise public awareness of the consequences. The moment a driver removes his or her attention and focus from the road, distracted driving occurs.

The following are common examples of distracted driving:

  • Texting
  • Eating or drinking
  • Personal grooming
  • Operating navigational systems
  • Cell phone use
  • Reading maps
  • Conversing with passengers

The growth in technology has brought new distractions into our vehicles, creating a severe safety crisis. When a driver chooses to pick up a cell phone, he or she is diverting their visual, manual, and cognitive attention. The individual raises the risk of a crash by 25% then when they are distracted while driving.

    "If I could give Ernie Trichler 10 stars, I definitely would"
    If I could give Ernie Trichler 10 stars, I definitely would - 5 stars is not enough. Ernie aided myself & family with my mother’s wrongful death case. He didn’t care that she was 100 years old. Ernie is professional, trustworthy, and most importantly, he knows the law. He answered his phone every time I called with questions and he always had the answers. I interviewed at least 4 different attorneys and there was no doubt that Ernie is above and beyond them all. If you are in need of an attorney within the realm of his expertise, I highly recommend Ernie Trichler.

    "I went through a very traumatic accident that left me hospitalized for a month and in recovery for much longer"

    I went through a very traumatic accident that left me hospitalized for a month and in recovery for much longer. It was such a difficult and expensive process that I never thought I'd ever recover from. Jennifer Mandelbaum took care of me from day 1 making sure I never had to stress which was so amazing for me as to this day suffer from terrible PTSD. She not only made sure that I was taken care of but also that I was treated like family and she walked me through every step, ensuring that I was properly represented and didn't have to struggle with my bills for all my specialized doctors and care. I couldn't recommend a better firm to take care of you in your moment of need!

    "Professionalism at its Finest"
    Ernie was the epitome of a silver lining in an unfortunate situation. Having never dealt with an attorney in any sort of professional capacity, I was quite intimidated by the prospect. However, Ernie quickly put my mind at ease. Throughout the entirety of my case, he kept in constant contact with me. He updated me on new developments every step of the way and was more than willing to decipher all legal jargon that came my way. He worked tirelessly to yield the best possible results from my case. From the day of our first interaction, I knew the case was in capable hands.
    - Cullen Murphy

I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal assistance. Thank you for a job well done!!
