Taking your eyes off the road isn’t acceptable, and you know this. That’s why when you’re involved in an accident as a result of someone else texting and driving, you deserve to get the compensation needed to cover your pain, suffering and medical care. Your lost wages and other financial difficulties should also be covered by the party at fault for the crash.
Is it hard to prove that someone was texting and driving? Yes and no. Did you see them texting before you crashed? Do you have another witness in your vehicle or a witness who stopped and can verify your claim? That can help. Police are also able to check texting records to see when the driver last sent or received a text. It’s possible to see that log and determine if the crash was likely to be a result of the text being received or sent.
With witness statements, digital evidence and other testimony, you may be able to prove that the other driver was distracted when you were hit. Our website has more information on how to prove this fact and get the compensation you deserve.
