Victims of Impaired and Distracted Driving

crashedcar2Dedicated.   Compassionate.  Aggressive.

We fight for victims injured by impaired and distracted drivers.

Together Partners Matt Casey and Matt Devoti have nearly 40 years of experience prosecuting car crash injuries in Missouri and Illinois.

Our two-attorney team, offers a unique combination of accessibility and compassion coupled with a fierce dedication to fighting for victim’s rights.

In the U.S. – drunk, impaired and distracted drivers kill 30,000 and injure 421,000 innocent victims every year.

  • Of these accidents, over half (64%) involve a cell phone.
  • 1 in 4 accidents are the result of texting and driving.
  • Texting and driving is 6 times more likely to cause a car accident than driving and driving.

Stricter laws against drunk/impaired driving have helped reduce the number of these types of accidents.   But enforcing the laws and prosecuting drunk/impaired driving offenders is difficult.  And, the penalties don’t do enough to deter repeat offenders.   The result is people continue to drive drunk or under the influence of prescription/illegal drugs.

But what’s even more alarming are the number of serious accidents and fatalities caused by distracted driving. Distracted driving is anything that causes a driver to divert their attention away from the primary task of driving.

Today, distracted driving is quickly becoming a greater epidemic than drunk/impaired driving.

crashedcarThe aftermath of a serious car accident is devastating. The victims or their loved ones are hurting due to:

  • Physical injuries
  • Emotional scars
  • Anxiety over medical bills, time off work and lost wages
  • Despair because you don’t know where to turn or who to trust

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or death due to the negligence of another, you may be entitled to compensation for things, such as:

  • Medical expenses
  • Surgeries
  • Ongoing therapy and rehabilitation
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral expenses
