Distracted Driving/Texting While Driving
Columbus Attorneys — Cell Phone Use and Texting While Driving
Skilled Atlanta Area Lawyers Handling Distracted Driving Accidents
The steady increase in the use of cell phones has led to a new threat on the road: distracted drivers. When a driver looks away from the road for just a moment to check a call or send a text message, he or she inadvertently puts other drivers on the road at risk of serious personal injury in an accident.
If you have been injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver, Daughtery, Crawford & Brown, LLP can help you. We are dedicated to helping clients pursue justice after suffering injuries in a car accident. We know that being injured can also lead to other financial losses, such as mounting medical bills and lost income from being out of work. Let us handle your legal claim for you while you concentrate on healing.
When you hire our firm, you will work directly with one of our attorneys, not an associate or a paralegal. Contact a Columbus lawyer at firm to discuss your distracted driving case and we will put our skills to use in proving the fault of the driver who was distracted by cell phone use or texting while driving.
Investigating Cell Phone Use After an Accident
If you suspect that the driver who caused your accident was using a cell phone, we will conduct a thorough investigation into their cell phone use. We will collect evidence, such as cell phone records and eyewitness statements. Our attorneys also work with law enforcement personnel and accident reconstruction experts in order to build your case.
We treat every case as though it were going to court. From day one, we are working to develop your claim for trial and give you the personal attention and guidance you deserve throughout your case. Our firm’s record of success in personal injury trials often allows us to obtain favorable settlements for our clients well before going to court.
Texting while driving is illegal in Georgia. Under the Caleb Sorohan Act, drivers are prohibited from texting, sending data or reading data on their cell phones while driving. Offenders could be fined $150 and receive a point on their license. If you were struck by a driver using a cell phone, you have every right to seek justice through a personal injury action. We will work to secure a recovery for medical expenses, lost wages and damages for mental and physical anguish.
