Texting & Cell Phone Car Accidents
Car accidents caused by driver texting and driver cell phone usage have unfortunately become all too common. Some studies have even shown that using a cell phone while driving can be almost as hazardous as driving while intoxicated. Texting is likely even more distracting, as drivers must pay complete attention to their phone while entering or reading text.
Proving Your Case
When a motor vehicle accident occurs that injures one of our clients, we want to know what the driver was doing immediately prior to the accident. If they were in fact texting or using a cell phone, this can be strong evidence they may not have been paying full attention to driving, and that they are responsible for causing the accident.
Fortunately, we no longer have to rely solely on eye witness accounts or the testimony that the other driver may give about what he or she was doing immediately before the accident occurred. Instead, we can obtain phone and texting records to determine whether the driver was using a cell phone at the time the accident.
Investigating whether driver texting or cell phone usage occurred at the time of an accident is only one aspect of how we investigate car and truck accidents on behalf of those injured.
