Texting While Driving and Other Distractions

Cellphone use is the most common form of distracted driving. In addition to texting and talking on the phone, however, there are many ways a driver can become distracted. Our lawyers have extensive experience handling distracted driving cases involving a driver:

  • Changing GPS settings or other dashboard settings
  • Checking email
  • Using a tablet, laptop or other mobile device
  • Changing a CD or radio station
  • Putting on makeup or eating while driving
  • Turning to speak to a passenger or child in the backseat

Evidence can disappear quickly after an accident. It is important to work with a lawyer who can interview witnesses, review police reports and collect other key evidence as soon as possible to prove distracted driving caused your accident. Our lawyers are skilled investigators who can provide you with the support, advice and representation you need at every stage of your case.
