Have you been injured playing Pokemon Go or by someone playing Pokemon Go?
The buzz is real: Playing Pokemon Go while driving can hurt you. But what happens when you or a loved one is the victim?
To renowned Professor of Law Gerry Beyer, “death by Pokemon is coming,” and the signs are here. Certain minor crashes and incidents involving the popular smartphone app have already been hitting the news, such as the distracted driving incident involving a Pokemon Go player who suffered a broken leg after crashing into a tree. But once the game’s popularity grows at even greater rates, the crashes may not be as harmless. To the attorneys at Nagelberg Bernard Law Group, this trend is beginning to raise legitimate concerns.
Distracted Driving & Road Safety Don’t Match
To the lawyers at the Nagelberg Bernard Law Group office and their clients, distracted driving is a serious matter.
As personal injury attorneys, we handle cases of auto crashes and collisions that are often caused by distracted drivers. These drivers often prefer to put unrestricted access to their phones and other communication gadgets before safety, putting countless of innocent California residents in danger. We see the pain and suffering these crashes produce on a regular basis, and understand that putting safety first is a matter of life and death.
Unfortunately, Pokemon Go is making the distracted driving epidemic worse by making drivers more likely to use their phones while behind the wheel.
In 2013, over 424,000 people were injured in auto crashes caused by distracted drivers nationwide. But the introduction of popular apps could make matters worse, pushing the number of distracted driving crashes up significantly.
To victims of Pokemon Go-related crashes, the consequences of such crashes may include loss of income, pain, and physical impairment due to crash injuries that could last a lifetime. Oftentimes, victims feel powerless as they attempt to obtain medical attention, losing their jobs in the process. That’s why personal injury attorneys should be consulted in these cases.
