Texting And Driving Accidents

Texting And Driving Accidents

Each time someone looks down at their phone while driving, their risk of causing an accident increases significantly. When they go further and decide to respond to a text message, compose an email, write a tweet, or anything else, they further distract themselves and further increase the risk of a severe accident. The unfortunate fact is that modern smartphones are full of apps, each trying to vie for our attention, and many people fall prey to these attention-grabbing alerts and notifications while on the road. 

If you have been involved in an accident that someone else caused due to texting while driving, you are entitled to compensation. Many people simply file an insurance claim and accept the first offer that the adjuster makes. Still, the reality is that you are likely entitled to much more than an insurer would ever voluntarily offer. Insurance companies and their adjusters prioritize low settlements to protect their financial interests. Working with a personal injury attorney is one of the best ways to ensure that you and going through your claim with the support of a proven and experienced legal professional who will advocate for your best interests, not the best interests of the insurance company.

Who Pays After a Texting and Driving Accident?

When you are in an accident, the first thing that your car accident attorney will need to establish is the fact that the other driver caused your accident and that they (or, more likely, their car insurance provider) are liable for any of the damages you have incurred as a victim. This is the first step in getting you the money you deserve, and while this can be a fairly straightforward process in some situations (such as if the driver admits to texting and driving), there are plenty of times when this simply is not the case. 

When it is either unclear or difficult to prove how your accident was caused, your attorney will be able to leverage their years of experience by identifying several factors that can help tell a complete story of your situation. They will be able to work directly with the insurer to reach a fair agreement about this factor before moving on to settlement negotiations, or they may simply choose to forgo negotiations entirely and take your case straight to court. These possibilities are dependent on a wide range of unique factors to your situation, so working with an attorney is the only way to truly understand what your logical next steps may be.

Determining Compensation After a Texting and Driving Accident

Once your attorney establishes clear fault, they will move on to calculating the many damages you have likely suffered as a result of this accident. For example, accidents involving commercial trucks like passenger buses, 18-wheelers, and tractor-trailers can have catastrophic consequences for everyone involved, simply due to the size difference between these vehicles and the average passenger vehicle. As such, there are extensive impacts in these accidents that go beyond medical bills and lost wages. 

When you are working with an attorney, they will go through all of the details of your life to identify and quantify all of these impacts before approaching the insurance company with a counter-offer after their initial settlement offer. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to contact our firm immediately so we can review the details of your situation and provide you with advice on how best to move forward with your case.
