Whenever someone gets behind the wheel, they have certain responsibilities. They have the duty to drive in a cautious manner, taking steps to ensure they are not acting as a hazard on the road. Unfortunately, many drivers are making the big mistake of engaging in distractions. When a driver is distracted and causes a car wreck, he or she may be held liable.

Distracted-driving accidents claim thousands of lives each year and injure many others. In 2010 alone, 416,000 people were hurt in distracted-driving crashes across the nation. Distracted drivers should be held accountable for their negligent actions.

Going back to the original question, if the other driver was distracted and was the cause of the Haymarket car accident, you may be able to recover compensation. If the other driver has insurance, you would pursue the claim with his or her insurance company. Keep in mind, though, that insurance companies are not always easy to work with. When serious injuries are involved, recovering compensation becomes that much more difficult.

Working with Andrew and his team has been--without exception--one of the most pleasant, productive, and professional experiences of my adult life. I was seriously injured in an accident in July, 2018, in Virginia. I was driving a company vehicle that was registered in Maryland, for a company that was based in Wisconsin. And I live in New Jersey, where my personal vehicles are insured. The several jurisdictions involved presented a very unique case that demanded an experienced and nuanced strategy. I found Andrew Thomas (of Dulaney, Lauer, & Thomas) through some online research. And it is noteworthy that Andrew has worked the other side of the aisle--he used to work with insurance companies. Andrew took on my case with the assurance that he would work it with no less energy than he does each of his cases. At each turn, and with each question I had, Andrew and Paralegal Misty kept me informed, returned my calls, provided detailed explanations, and kept me feeling like I was in the loop and there was an eventual end to our journey. Nearly five years after the accident, we settled out of court for a significant sum in recognition of my personal injuries. The settlement was much more than I had expected. And without Andrew & Misty, I am sure the award would have been much less. If you are looking for professionalism, knowledge, dedication, answerability, responsiveness, integrity, and human-level communication from a personal injury attorney--look no further. You have found him. Thank you, Andrew and Misty. Gary Daley
