Comprehensive Legal Support for Distracted Driving Accidents

The advancement of technology has led to many wonderful achievements for our society over the years. It led to the creation of smartphones, social media, live video streaming, and video chatting. Today, almost everyone owns a smartphone and it allows them to connect with others in ways that were unprecedented. Although the rise of technology has proven to be a great endeavor, it has also led to some serious and potentially dangerous drawbacks.

Staying connected on social media and browsing the web at the touch of your fingers is a wonderful thing, however, many people perform these actions while driving. In 2017, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that 9% of fatal crashes involved distracted driving and 3,166 people were killed in distracted-driving crashes. Browsing the web, texting, and even calling while driving can put you and others at risk of getting into an car accident.

The Impact of Cell Phones on Road Safety

Not all forms of distracted driving involve phones, but more than 80% of motorists admit to regularly texting, talking, or otherwise using digital devices while driving. As a result, the majority of distracted driving accidents now involve cell phones, raising important questions of liability for affected parties.

The digital world that we live in can be fraught with dangers. It is important to understand the repercussions of distracted driving, as people may not realize they are putting others at risk. Negligent drivers need to be held accountable for their actions. At Burnside Brankamp Law, we are committed to holding these distracted drivers accountable. You should not have to face the negligence of others on your own. We are prepared to fight with you every step of the way.

Understanding Third Party Liability in Distracted Driving Cases

When private individuals cause accidents and injuries while texting, talking, or otherwise driving while distracted, there is a strong likelihood that they are directly, solely responsible. However, there are some circumstances in which third parties may bear full or partial liability for your injuries.

For example, an employer may be held responsible for the results of a car accident caused by an employee who was required to drive while on a work-related phone call. Parents can also be held legally responsible if their teenage children engage in risky roadway behaviors and cause costly damage to pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, or other driers.

Even if you are unsure how to prove that the driver who hurt you was distracted, you may still have legal options. At Burnside Brankamp Law, we understand how to investigate your accident, build a strong case, and pursue compensation for your injuries. Allow us to come alongside you and advise you during this time.

Establishing Liability for Distracted Driving Accidents

One of the most important parts of any effective personal injury claim is proving that the defendant behaved negligently and that their negligence directly contributed to your injuries. Unless they explicitly confess that they were not focused on the road at the time of the accident, it can be quite challenging to prove that the person who harmed you did so as a result of any of the following forms of distracted driving:

  • Texting and driving
  • Talking on the phone while driving
  • Eating while driving
  • Adjusting the music, air, etc. while driving
  • Failing to maintain focus on the road for any other reason
