Distracted Driving

Distracted Driving


When Rick Schroeder first began representing persons injured in car crashes, the distractions a driver might experience were changing the cassette tape or reaching for a pen in the glove box. Today, the distractions start with a smartphone and include the vehicle’s highly inter-active and colorful computer screens, hot beverages and food. Recently, a Schroeder & Mandel client whose family has been impacted by a distracted driver provided an account to the media at a Minnesota Department of Public Safety press conference. Rick has worked closely with other lawyers on behalf of this family, as they determine the long-term extent of injuries suffered by the 4 year old boy.
