After a car accident results in injuries, two critical aspects of the case require focused investigation: the nature of the injuries and the cause of the wreck. Determining how the accident occurred will allow a skilled personal injury attorney to pinpoint who is liable. With evidence of liability, the next step is a well-documented injury claim or lawsuit to recover compensation for the injured.
One critical question for any auto accident investigation is, “Was distracted driving the cause of the crash?” Distracted driving is nothing new. Drivers have often acted carelessly by lighting cigarettes, changing radio stations and engaging in heated discussions with passengers. In today’s world of portable digital devices, however, many additional temptations abound. Drivers often make phone calls, send and receive texts, fiddle with global positioning system (GPS) apparatuses and in some cases, even manipulate tablet computers or in-car video systems while driving.
If you were injured and the other driver was texting while driving, your personal injury lawyer will want to use that fact to strengthen your claim for compensation. When we at Silverman & Associates, P.C., in Denver represent people harmed in car crashes, we nearly always request cellphone records and look for other evidence that the other driver was inattentive. All facts related to your car accident are important during our investigation. The sooner we are involved in your case, the more detailed we can get — and the more likely it is that we will discover the true cause of the accident.
