If you’re searching for help after a crash that has just recently happened, it’s common not to know the full details behind what happened, what caused the accident, and why you became a victim. This uncertainty and your search for answers is something our distracted driving accident lawyers see with all of our victims. It’s essential to think about the events leading up to your crash — not just the crash itself — to determine who is responsible for the injuries, pain, and financial stress you’re experiencing now.
Because cell phone use causes distracted driving most often, our team will commonly request the driver’s cell phone records. If a phone company or the driver does not offer records voluntarily, our distracted driving accident attorneys can file a subpoena. This formal, written order compels the company by law to cooperate with our request.
If text messages, app usage, or a phone call occurred at the time of the accident, we could illustrate that the driver was using their phone when the crash occurred. We can show they were distracted visually, manually, or cognitively from their responsibility to operate a vehicle safely.
Other instances of distracted driving may be more apparent at the time of the crash. For example, a pet may be loose in the vehicle at the time of the crash. Or, witnesses may be able to attest to distracted behavior. To expertly build a solid case when we believe distracted driving was involved, our car accident attorneys leave no stone unturned when looking for sources of evidence
