Distracted Driving: Car Wrecks Caused by Motorists Using Cellphones

As a Benbrook, TX personal injury and wrongful death attorney, I know there being very few laws in Texas concerning using a cellphone behind the wheel – it is one of the most dangerous activities a driver can commit. Distracted drivers are a very real hazard to public safety and the number of distracted driving wrecks in Benbrook and throughout the entire Dallas-Fort Worth area continues to rise each year.


Fortunately, if you or someone you love has been injured in an automobile collision caused by a distracted driver, you may have a right to recover compensation. Call the Anderson Law Firm today for a free, no obligation consultation with a board certified personal injury lawyer. Call toll free 24/7 at 800-354-6275 or locally in Tarrant County at 817-294-1900.


Proving Negligence in a Distracted Driving Accident

One of the biggest problems facing laws to ban distracted driving is that it is often difficult for a police officer to prove that the driver had been using their cellphone. Proving negligence therefore is a similar challenge in a personal injury or wrongful death case – which is why it is so critical that you hire an experience attorney to represent your case.


Establishing negligence behind the wheel is critical in order to make a successful personal injury or wrongful death claim – and recover the full and fair compensation our clients deserve. This is a responsibility we take extremely seriously at the Anderson Law Firm. After all, no-one ever wants to be injured in a car crash. No-one really wants to make a personal injury claim. People do so because they have no choice. The at-fault driver’s insurance company will not treat them fairly without an attorney fighting on their behalf – and recovering compensation is essential due to the enormous financial consequences of being seriously injured.


Make Sure You Are Informed About Your Legal Rights

Here at the Anderson Law Firm, we offer all injury victims and their immediate family members a free, no obligation consultation where we will discuss your unique situation, assess your claim, and let you know what your legal options are – including any important deadlines that you need to be aware of. However, if you feel you are not yet ready to speak with an attorney, you can still request a complimentary copy of lawyer Mark Anderson’s book 15 Mistakes That Will Wreck Your Texas Accident Case.
