Independence, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2016 -- Contacting an attorney immediately after an accident involving a serious or fatal injury is crucial. One well-respected firm based in Independence, Missouri seeks to educate the people throughout the states of Missouri, Kansas, and the Midwest about their legal rights following a serious accident. The firm, Horn Law, offers 24-hour legal consultation services and primarily focuses on cases that involved accidents that were caused by distracted drivers and resulted in injury or death.
"Contacting an attorney shortly after you've been in an accident involving a distracted driver is important, especially before talking with insurance adjusters or other outside investigators. When you contact Horn Law, we will get started on your case right away. Our rapid response ensures that you will have the best possible chance to obtain maximum compensation for your injuries. I will make arrangements to meet with clients at their home, the hospital, or any other convenient location to provide them and their families with a free consultation of their case.

In 2014, the United States Department of Transportation released a summary of statistical findings that stated, "In 2013, there were 3,154 people killed and an estimated additional 424,000 injured in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers." These statistics are likely to continue rising as new, young drivers learn to drive in the technology era. Some of the most common causes for distracted driving include texting and emailing while behind the wheel, talking on the phone while driving, manipulating portable electronic devices while driving, eating and drinking while driving, and the driver taking their eyes off the road to read, navigate and adjust controls. While most states have a "no texting while driving" law in place, the number of accidents involving distracted drivers is still on the rise.
