Do I Need a Distracted Driving Lawyer?
If you’ve been the victim of a distracted driver, you’re likely facing mounting medical bills and lost wages. You’re probably not sure how you’re going to make ends meet while you’re recovering from your injuries and are unable to go to work. Caffee Law can help get you the justice you deserve after a distracted driver harmed you. You could be entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering to name a few.
Victims of accidents caused by distracted drivers must show that the driver who caused the crash acted negligently. Drivers can be found negligent if they were texting while driving, taking selfies while operating a vehicle, updating social media while going through a red light, or engaging in any other activity that took their attention away from the road. Evidence of negligence is an important factor in getting the compensation that you deserve. Obtaining proof of distracted driving to support an injury lawsuit is a difficult task, and will be much easier with the help of an experienced lawyer.
Managing partner Jeffrey R. Caffee and his team at Caffee Law have devoted their careers to helping people who have been unfairly injured and know how to get the proof you need to show that the driver who caused your accident was distracted. We collect evidence, calculate your damages, and fight on your behalf so that you can focus on getting back to living your life.

Types of Cases We Handle:
Distracted driving accidents are caused when a driver engages in any activity that takes their focus away from the road. There are three main types of distractions:
- Visual — Anything that causes a driver to take their eyes off the road is a visual distraction.
- Manual — When a driver takes their hands off the steering wheel, even for a matter of seconds, they may be unable to control the car or make evasive maneuvers.
- Cognitive — When a driver’s mind is not focused on the task of driving, they are cognitively distracted.
Often, a distraction falls into more than one category, making it even more dangerous. Some common distractions include:
- Talking on a cell phone
- Applying makeup
- Using a GPS
- Adjusting the radio or other controls
When a driver doesn’t focus their attention on driving, severe and sometimes fatal accidents occur. If you have been injured in a crash caused by any of the above distractions, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the at-fault driver. This compensation can include payment for:
- Medical expenses
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Rehabilitative expenses
- Pain and suffering
If your loved one was tragically killed in a distracted driving accident, you may also be eligible for death benefits, including compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, and lost income. Caffee Law can help you file a wrongful death claim if this scenario applies to you.
