Lawyers for Texting-While-Driving Claims in Rock Hill, SC
We work closely with our motor vehicle accident clients to develop the facts and evidence that can prove that driver distraction played a significant part in causing the accident. Your own observations can stand as valuable evidence.
In many types of car accident cases, the other driver will freely admit to talking on the phone, answering a text message, tuning a radio, plugging in an iPod. Whether or not the other driver later denies it, your testimony of what he or she told you will normally be admissible in court. Cell phone records can also establish the time and duration of a conversation or text message exchange.
A Distracted Driving Attorney Can Help You
This evidence not only helps establish the other driver’s negligence in a distracted driving accident case — it can also open the door for an award of punitive damages in much the same way that drunk drivers are exposed to punitive damages in DUI accident cases. Anyone can make a mistake, but people who invite disaster through higher degrees of carelessness can be made to pay the price in court.
The Rock Hill distracted driving accident attorneys at Schiller & Hamilton investigate and present damages claims under a wide range of distraction scenarios:
- Cell phone calls
- Texting while driving
