Texting while driving car accidents can be complicated. That’s why our experienced attorneys want to help you.
You have rights. Our texting accident attorneys can stand up for them.
You might think you don’t need a lawyer if a texting driver clearly caused your car accident. Since the other driver clearly broke the law, the police officer investigating your crash will take care of everything, right? Don’t be so sure.
In many cases, texting drivers deny texting while driving. The other driver and their lawyers might try to prevent you from accessing their cellphone records. Or they might even try to somehow claim you did something to cause the accident. While the police may be investigating your crash, their job is simply determining what happened, not whether you’re fairly compensated for your accident-related expenses.
That’s our job, and we take our work very seriously. As your attorney, we will thoroughly investigate your texting while driving car accident. If the other driver denies doing anything wrong or refuses to allow you to see their cellphone records, we will not hesitate to take them to court and file a car accident lawsuit against them on your behalf.
