Texting and Driving Car Accident

Injured In A Texting and Driving Accident?

According to the National Safety Council, 1.6 million accidents happen in the United States every year because a driver is texting. Many states have yet to pass texting and driving legislation, and accident victims seldom receive justice.

That's why it's critical to have a professional attorney on your side to help you receive the compensation you deserve.



What You Should Know About Texting and Driving

Drivers distracted by their phones in recent years have negatively impacted the safety of our roads. The following statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shed light on how risky texting and driving in the United States can be:

  • 49% of drivers under the age of 35 have sent or read text messages while driving.
  • 42% of young drivers are confident they can text safely while driving.
  • 36% of teens claim that they have almost experienced a crash due to distracted driving.
  • Texting while driving is 6x more dangerous than driving while intoxicated.

These statistics are at an all-time high, leading many innocent motorists to fall victim to other driver's negligence.

Frequently Asked Questions

The law limits the amount of time you can file a claim and collect damages for your auto accident. That law is called the Statute of Limitations. No matter how great your loss, you will not be able to collect if you miss this deadline. Your lawyer will know all the deadlines for your state. Putting a claim together can take time, so it's important to consult with a lawyer near you as soon as possible.
To have a case, you must prove that: 1. Legal duty existed, 2. The defendant(s) failed to exercise that legal duty, 3. The plantiff(s) were injured directly or indirectly because of that breach of duty, and 4. There were damages (money lost) that can be recovered from the defendant.
Liability is when someone is legally responsible to another person because of his or her actions or failure to act. In a personal injury case there may be several parties who have a certain degree of liability or responsibility for the auto accident.
Negligence is when one party is careless in its duty to someone. For example, if a landlord doesn't repair a broken step and someone slips and falls, then the landlord was negligent. He had a duty to fix the step; he didn't fix it; someone fell and suffered damages because he didn't fix it. Negligence is often part of personal injury cases.
Damages is the legal word for the money an injured party has lost due to an injury. Those damages could be medical bills, prescriptions, time off from work, lengthy recovery time, and also pain and suffering. Most insurance policies only cover certain parts of the cost involved in common injuries like car accidents, slip and falls or workplace illnesses. For example, they may pay the hospital, but not rehabilitation specialists. Personal injury lawyers make it their job to recover damages from all responsible parties and cover more than just medical bills, but also things like pain and suffering, emotional distress and time lost from work.
