When Distracted Drivers Cause Accidents

Proving negligence on the basis of distracted driving is usually not a simple task. When a proper independent investigation reveals evidence of distracted driving, however, securing the maximum compensation that accident survivors deserve is very achievable.

Your auto insurance company cannot be depended upon to conduct such a thorough investigation, and a police report indicating distracted driving as the cause of an accident is not enough to establish the full and fair value of your case.

At Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & DeNigris, LLP, we have over 25 years of experience with personal injury law, and we have handled hundreds of motor vehicle accident cases in Connecticut.

Tony Sheffy's over 25 years of personal injury law experience include years of insurance defense work. His inside knowledge of insurance companies' tactics gives your case the edge in negotiations and at trial.

DO NOT speak to any insurance company before consulting an experienced attorney. Insurers are concerned with profits and their bottom lines, which equates to minimizing your compensation and denying your injury claims.
