Distracted Driving Accident Litigation Attorneys in Texas Represent You in Court
San Antonio law firm providing assistance to the injured and uninsured
Auto accidents are frequently caused by drivers who aren’t paying attention to the road. Distracted drivers may be liable for the medical bills and other damages suffered by those involved in an accident they have caused. Drivers involved in a car, motorcycle, truck or pedestrian-related accident need an attorney who will represent their interests. At The Law Office of Tim Smith, P.C., we represent the injured and defend drivers against civil suits alleging distracted driving.
The hazards of distracted driving
Many states regulate the use of cellphones and other electronic devices by drivers. This is because phone calls and text messages take a driver’s mind and eyes off of the road. Any distraction can be enough to cause an accident. In addition to cellphones, other distractions include:
- GPS systems
- Food and drink
- Makeup application
- Car radios
- CB radios
After an accident, our attorneys support you through the complicated legal process of litigating a personal injury lawsuit.
The role of expert witnesses in auto accident cases
Our attorneys maintain a close professional relationship with top trauma doctors, chiropractors, forensics engineers, mechanics and collision reconstruction analysts and regularly consult these experts to present a strong case in your personal injury suit. At trial these professional experts can deliver compelling testimony to help jurors understand the cause of the accident as well as the true nature and extent of alleged injuries.
A strong defense in court and settlement negotiations
Consulting an attorney immediately following an auto accident is essential to the preservation of crucial evidence and witness testimony for both the injured and the accused. If you are the defendant in a distracted driving case, your insurance company may claim they will defend you. It is important to understand, however, that their interests may be different from yours. We represent your interests and work to defend you from liability.
