Did you know that distracted driving causes one out of every four crashes in Texas? Unfortunately, many of these accidents could have been prevented.
Have you been hit and injured by a driver that was distracted?
If so, you need experienced legal representation to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
At the law offices of Stephens, Anderson & Cummings, our licensed Texas and Oklahoma automotive accident attorneys have helped people just like you obtain compensation for the property damage and injuries that distracted drivers cause.
What Is Distracted Driving?
Distracted driving consists of doing any activity while driving which takes a drivers attention away from the road. The most common example is using a cell phone while driving. Unlike most states, Texas does not have a state-wide prohibition against cell phone use by a driver, which has likely contributed to the state's 3,283 phone-related accidents during 2012.
While cell phones may be the most well-known cause of distracted driving, drivers can be distracted by almost anything, including pets, children, changing radio stations, or eating and drinking.
Why Does It Matter If The Other Driver Was Distracted?
By proving that another driver was distracted when your accident occurred, you may be able to increase your chance of winning a personal injury lawsuit, even if you were partially at fault for the accident. As long as the distracted driver was at least 50% responsible for causing the accident, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries.
Proving that a driver caused an accident because of distraction takes competent, thorough attorneys. At Stephens, Anderson & Cummings, our attorneys will fully examine the accident scene, review police reports, search phone records, interview witnesses, and exhaust every way of determining the true cause of your accident.
