How to Prove Distracted Driving in Car Accident Cases

How to Prove Distracted Driving in Car Accident Cases

Distracted driving accidents cause thousands of life-changing injuries and traffic fatalities every year. For those who survive such accidents, the damages are often burdensome and severe. Such damages typically include lost wages, massive hospital bills, and the costs of long-term care, which make it essential for affected persons to take legal action against the responsible parties.

Recovering compensation from a negligent driver after a serious accident requires injured persons and their legal representatives to establish liability in court, meaning that they must demonstrate beyond reasonable doubt that the person or entity being sued behaved negligently and in so doing contributed to the damages experienced by plaintiffs.

This can be particularly challenging when it comes to proving that a driver behaved negligently by using their phone, eating, reading, applying makeup, or engaging in other distractions while behind the wheel—but we can help you make it happen.

When you call Kempton & Russell for help following a distracted driving accident, we are prepared to investigate your crash by:

  • - Obtaining video footage of the area where the crash occurred
  • - Identifying and obtaining statements from witnesses
  • - Reviewing the police report for any incriminating statements about the other driver’s behavior at the time of and preceding the accident
  • - Acquiring cell phone records
