liable for damages to any aggrieved party. If you or a loved one was struck

car accident lawyer in Montgomery County who can fight to recover compensation.

What can you recover damages for?
Every state imposes a legal duty of care on drivers, meaning they must
look out for the safety of other drivers and avoid acting in a negligent
manner. Texting while behind the wheel constitutes a breach of this duty
of care, essentially putting other drivers around them at risk.
As the victim, you could be entitled to the following compensation:
- Property damage to your automobile
- Past and any future medical bills
- Physical therapy
- Rental car costs
- Prescription medication
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
