Have You Been Injured By a
Distracted Driver In Albany?

Driving distracted is nothing new. However, it has increased during the last decade due to cell phone use and texting while driving.

The distracted driving accident lawyers of Powers & Santola, LLP, have a record of helping victims and their families in Albany, Syracuse and elsewhere in New York State to recover after being hurt in distracted driving crashes.

Distracted Driving

The National Safety Council reports the most dangerous time of a teen’s life is the first 12 months of having a driver’s license. Car accidents are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens. Inexperienced teen drivers are three times more likely to be involved in an accident than adults. When they have three or more teen passengers, that risk is quadrupled.

Most accidents involving teens are caused by inexperience. As a matter of fact, 75% of teen crashes are due to “critical errors,” according to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute. These errors include: lack of scanning the road, going too fast for conditions, and being distracted by something inside or outside the vehicle.
