When Another Driver’s Texting Or Other Distractions Caused Injury To You

Distracted driving is causing more and more accidents in Kentucky and nationwide. All of us need to drive defensively to steer clear of distracted drivers. In case of an accident, it may be important to find out whether the other driver was driving while texting or otherwise distracted.

A detailed investigation after a motor vehicle accident is essential to the process of determining liability. Showing that another driver was in the wrong can go a long way in building an effective claim for compensation. Accident reconstruction may reveal that a negligent driver failed to watch out properly because of distractions such as:

  • Texting while driving
  • Using devices like cameras, tablet computers, GPS devices or radio dials
  • Talking with other occupants in the car
  • Eating, smoking or grooming
  • Sightseeing

Whatever type of activity constituted a distraction, evidence demonstrating another driver’s carelessness can enhance your claim for compensation after a crash.
