A driver has two simple responsibilities: pay attention to his or her surroundings and follow the traffic laws. Instead, far too many drivers talk on the phone, send text messages, check emails, put on makeup, read the newspaper, fiddle with the GPS, or shave. Unfortunately, this disregard for the safety of others can have tragic consequences, and lead to injuries and even death.
If distracted driving — such as talking on a cellphone while driving — can be proven, it is incredibly helpful in determining liability in a personal injury case. This is particularly cut-and-dry in cases involving teenagers, as drivers under the age of 18 are barred from using a cellphone, even a hands-free device, behind the wheel.
The first step to pursuing compensation is speaking to an experienced Waterbury car accident attorney at Brennan Law Firm, LLC. We have more than 30 years of experience seeking justice for the injured and have obtained impressive results in motor vehicle accident claims.
If you or a loved one has been harmed in an accident involving a distracted driver, it is crucial that you understand your rights. This includes the right to seek compensation for medical costs, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and other damages in a personal injury claim. Additionally, you have a right to hold negligent drivers responsible for their actions.

What a nice Easter surprise! It came in the mail Sat. I certainly wasn’t expecting anything like that but it does give me the opportunity to tell you that I’m so glad that you are our lawyer. Not only that we succeeded, but you made it so that I was at ease during the depositions and before the judge. Thank you so very much for all you did on my behalf. Also, please give my thanks to Staci for all her help. Louise B.
In October, 2010, I retained Attorney Brennan concerning a Workers' Compensation matter. My experiences with Attorney Brennan and his staff has been nothing short of wonderful.

Attorney Brennan's response to my needs concerning my case are always answered in a professional, expeditious manner and, thus far, the results have always been to my benefit. I have and will continue to recommend Attorney Brennan/Brennan Law Firm, as Attorney Brennan and his staff are very reliable, polite, and pleasant at all times, even under some of the most stressful situations.
