Atlanta Texting And Driving Accident Lawyer in GA

Dedicated to Achieving the Outcome You Deserve

Many car accidents are caused by negligent behavior, and few behaviors are as negligent as texting and driving. Texting while driving is responsible for hundreds of car accidents across the country each year. About 400 deaths are caused by texting and driving each year, while roughly 30,000 deaths are caused by distracted driving in general, according to the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). If someone is the victim of an accident caused by a distracted driver, then they have the right to file a personal injury claim against the driver’s insurance company.

Unfortunately, it is not always easy to prove that someone was texting when they caused an accident, which is why you need the help of an attorney.

Why Texting While Driving is so Dangerous

While all forms of distracted driving are dangerous, texting while driving is particularly bad. The reason is that it combines all three forms of distracted driving into one action. The different kinds of driver distractions are as follows:

Visual Distractions

These are actions that take the driver’s eyes off the road and include the driver checking the GPS, fiddling with their infotainment system, or grooming themself. Texting is a visual distraction because the driver will be looking at their screen instead of the road.

Manual Distractions

These occur when the driver takes one or both hands off the steering wheel to perform another action. Eating or drinking while driving is a common manual distraction. Texting while driving is a manual distraction because the driver will be typing on their phone.

Cognitive Distractions

These happen when the driver’s attention is diverted to something other than driving. Daydreaming for extended periods is a cognitive distraction, as is texting while driving, since the driver will focus on what they are texting or reading.

How To Prove Texting While Driving

It can be tricky to prove that someone was texting when they caused an accident because it’s unlikely that there will be any clear proof at the accident scene. The driver having a phone in their car isn’t clear evidence since they can just claim they weren’t using it when the accident happened. However, a skilled attorney will be able to uncover evidence that proves the driver’s liability.

If there were any witnesses to the driver’s texting, an attorney can find them. The same goes for any surveillance footage that might have caught the driver texting on camera. If all else fails, an attorney can subpoena the distracted driver’s phone company to produce their phone records. The attorney will check the timeline to find out if the driver was texting at the time of the crash. So, even if the distracted driver denies their actions because they don’t think you can prove their wrongdoing, an attorney can discover the truth. You should contact us at Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C. if you were involved in an accident with a driver who was texting while they were driving.

Common Texting While Driving Accidents

Texting and driving accidents can be very serious because the driver could collide with another vehicle at high speeds, but even a low-speed collision could lead to injuries. The following are some of the accidents that could be caused while a driver is texting:

These are very common because the distracted driver might not realize the vehicle ahead of them has stopped or slowed down. That means the oblivious driver could end up rear-ending the vehicle in front of them.

This is when a car drifts out of its lane and bumps into a vehicle in an adjacent lane. A sideswipe accident might not do much damage on its own, but it could lead to further accidents.

T-bone Collisions

These tend to happen at intersections when a driver ignores a stop sign or traffic light. A T-bone collision can be devastating to the driver on the receiving end of the impact because the side of a vehicle doesn’t have any protection. A driver is more likely to run a stop sign or red light if they are looking at their phone instead of the road.
