Distracted Driving Attorney for St. Louis, Missouri
Distracted driving is a deadly epidemic plaguing big cities all around our country, and St. Louis is no exception.
Missouri’s second-largest city sees hundreds of traffic accidents every year, many involving serious injury or death, and distracted driving is an increasingly common cause.
There is no excuse for distracted driving. Everyone who gets behind the wheel has a duty to exercise the highest degree of care while driving a motor vehicle. That means always driving alert, buckled, and cautious.
Driving alert is so important, especially given the new universe of risk caused by a growing number of distracted drivers. Distracted drivers come in all forms, but is especially dangerous to use a cell phone where a text or response can take a driver’s eyes off the road for more than 3 seconds.
Every single auto accident caused by distracted driving is preventable. Drivers who fail to approach driving with the serious sense of responsibility it deserves should be held accountable for their negligence. After all, the victims and their families certainly don’t deserve to bear the burden of that negligence by themselves.
In fact, Missouri law entitles St. Louis distracted driving victims to monetary compensation for their personal loss, which can include medical expenses, time away from work, loss of health, mobility, and quality of life. and much more. Indeed, the distracted driving accidents are typically violent, the greater the probability of serious injury and death.
Insurance companies who represent distracted drivers fight hard to minimize your damage claim. This is especially true now as insurance companies are facing more claims. The goal is to settle out your case cheaply and quickly and preserve profits. This is the job of an insurance adjuster, to adjust claims in favor of the insurance company. In almost all circumstances, St. Louis car accident victims need an experienced legal advocate to hold these insurance companies for a distracted driver.
Attorney Douglas R. Horn has more than 25 years of experience as a safe driving advocate and a distracted driving attorney for St. Louis, Missouri.

Today, Horn’s practice is focused primarily on motor vehicle accident cases. He has a track record of success in maximizing insurance settlements and awards under Missouri law. His areas of concentration include accident cases involving traffic signal violations, highway and rural road accidents.
Distracted Driving Is Emerging as a Legal Field All Its Own
Distracted driving cases are on an astronomical rise in Missouri, thanks in large part of the advent of the smartphone and the explosion of texting while driving.
