Distracted Driving Car Accident

Fort Lauderdale Distracted Driving Car Accident Attorney

If you’ve been injured by a distracted driver, contact this Fort Lauderdale Distracted Driving Car Accident Lawyer. Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of accidents today. When a driver is not paying attention to the road, it is easy to cause a crash.

There are various forms of distracted driving. Amongst these are texting and driving. A driver who sends or reads a text can easily cause a wreck. Studies have shown that even just glancing at text messages (rather than actually responding to texts) can drastically increase the risk of causing a collision).

Other forms of distracted driving include making phone calls while driving. Although using “Bluetooth” or talking over the speaker phone can be a little safer, there is some risk – and people talking on the phone in any manner can cause car crashes.

Another form of distracted driving is surfing the internet or looking at Facebook or other social media. Any phone usage in a vehicle drastically increases the risk of a car wreck.

Finally, paying attention to other things in the vehicle can increase the chance of a car accident. For example, a driver’s playing with the radio or attending to children in the car can contribute to the risk of a car accident.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident caused by distracted driving, it will be important to prove that the other driver was, in fact, driving distracted. There are various ways to do this. One way is through witnesses. That is, if the driver of another vehicle saw the driver of the defendant’s car using his or her phone or exhibiting some other form of distracted driving, then you may be able to use that testimony in court.

Additionally, you may be able to subpoena the phone records of the at-fault driver. You can do this through the service-provider of the at-fault driver (i.e., AT&T, Verizon, etc.). With today’s technology, it’s possible to tell if a cell phone user was using his or her cell phone at the time of the car wreck. This includes making phone calls/talking on the phone, texting and driving, surfing the internet, etc. It will be hard for the at-fault driver to deny that he or she was using the phone when you have the phone records in court.

If you are able to prove that the other driver was distracted at the time of the car collision, you may be entitled to punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed to actually punish the other driver (rather than simply compensate you – which compensatory damages are designed to do). However, in order to obtain punitive damages, you will have to file a Motion in Court – so it’s best to hire a vehicle accident attorney as soon as possible.
