Distracted Driver Accidents
One of the biggest culprits of vehicular accidents in Dallas is distracted driving. Even a quick glance towards a text on your cell phone can be enough to negatively impact your or a third party’s life.
If you’ve been involved in a car accident with a distracted driver and suffered injuries, you are eligible for compensation from insurance companies as well as the distracted driver themselves.
At the Bober Law Firm, we take distracted driving seriously and leave no stone unturned as we craft an accurate, effective case for each of our clients.
How Dangerous is Distracted Driving?
Distracted driving is the root of nearly 400,000 injuries in collisions. What makes these types of accidents so dangerous is that there isn’t time for the offending driver to react in any way, so the victim will always get the full force of the collision against their bodies.
Distracted driving accidents often result in serious injuries, but many also end with graver circumstances.
How Can a Distracted Driver Accident Impact Your Life?
An accident with a distracted driver can leave you and others involved with serious injuries. Not only does this mean that over time, your medical bills will start to pile up, but you could also be unable to perform the normal responsibilities of your job.
With the combination of these two results, as well as the issue that it’s difficult to prove a person was driving distracted, your family can quickly become in dire financial circumstances.
What to Do After a Distracted Driver Accident
Much like with other accidents documentation is essential. However, with a distracted driver accident, if you get injured, you’re going to need definite proof that they were distracted.
Before reaching out to a personal injury lawyer, follow these steps:
- Take photos of the accident scene (Lack of tire tracks from braking is an excellent way to show a driver was distracted)
- Take photos of you or your passenger’s injuries
- Collect the information of all drivers involved
- Collect witness testimonials, especially from people who can confirm that the driver was distracted at the time of the accident.
Why Should You Hire a Personal Injury Attorney After an Accident?
Proving that a driver was distracted at the time of an accident can be a difficult task. Not many drivers are willing to admit that they weren’t watching the road, so gaining maximum compensation from insurance companies in these instances is rare. Proof is necessary, and that’s where the experienced personal injury lawyers of Bober Law Firm step in.
If you know that you have a distracted driver case on your hands, we can use your documentation to prove to insurance companies that you deserve maximum compensation for your injuries.
Should your case become a lawsuit that goes to court, your personal injury lawyer can help prove your stance via:
- Stringent review of the accident police report and photographs
- Subpoena phone records to prove they were texting/talking at the time of the accident
- Hiring a crash expert to analyze the accident and testify for you in court
