Victim Of An Accident Involving Texting While Driving?
Unfortunately, texting while driving does not seem to be a passing fad. Much like drunk driving and other forms of distracted driving, it is something many drivers believe they can get away with and poses no danger to others or themselves. Of course, this is false. Texting while driving is always dangerous and can be lethal.
Proving negligence in a distracted driving case can be difficult, but a texting while driving accident provides another option for evidence of distracted driving.
A person’s phone data can often definitively show that a driver was texting with someone, actively searching the Internet or looking at a map on the phone while driving.
However, phone usage data is not always definitive and may require linking additional evidence to the use of the phone to prove that the driver was indeed distracted by the phone and driving at the same time.
At Flesch & Beck Law, our attorneys know what it takes to present a convincing case of texting while driving or any form of distracted driving. It often requires witness testimony, phone data usage records and accident reconstruction that convincingly present slow reaction time by the driver who was distracted.
Securing Compensation And Holding The Distracted Driver Accountable
Just presenting evidence of distracted driving is not enough. You need a lawyer who is comfortable at trial and knows precisely how to prepare a winning case to have a chance at maximizing the compensation you deserve for injuries and losses.
Several studies performed by universities, advocacy groups and government agencies have shown that using a phone while driving is just as dangerous as driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08, which is the legal limit for drunk driving.
Proving fault may not be difficult, but proving negligence can be. Our attorneys know Colorado courts. They know Metro Denver judges, and they know the insurance defense lawyers. We know what they are all looking for, and we know how to counter both doubt and challenging opposition.
