As technology evolves, the temptation to text, navigate apps, or stream video while driving—if only for a quick moment—is growing stronger. Unfortunately, as more drivers are removing their eyes from the road, the risk for car accidents increases as well. The more distracted the driver is, the more opportunities for a collision there are. If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by a distracted driver, the knowledgeable personal injury legal team at Henderson Taylor Law Firm PLLC are here to help you understand your options for filing a personal injury claim and collecting the compensation you deserve.
In order to file a successful personal injury claim, you and your attorney will need to provide sufficient evidence that shows that the driver was indeed responsible for your injuries. Immediately following most accidents, law enforcement will arrive to survey the scene, and this is when they will investigate whether the other driver was using a cell phone or otherwise distracted at the time of the incident. Cell phone records obtained by the police can show whether the driver was texting, and such documentation can later be used as part of your claim to assign fault to the distracted driver whose negligent behavior led to your injuries.
Here to Help
Once you have received all necessary medical attention for any injuries suffered in the accident, your next step should be to contact a skilled personal injury attorney who can guide you through your legal options. Even if you are not certain that the other driver was indeed a distracted driver, we can help you navigate the personal injury claims process and achieve a favorable outcome. Our goal is to implement solid legal strategies to help you obtain the compensation you need in order to heal and recover from this stressful event.
