Texting While Driving Accident Injuries

Texting while driving is simply a form of distracted driving and accounts for thousands of injuries and deaths on the roadways in the United States every year. The injuries victims suffer when texting while driving is often catastrophic or deadly. Texting and driving is distracted driving; therefore, the other driver has diverted their complete attention from the roadway.
As a result, the accidents can involve swerving into another lane or even hitting another vehicle in a head-on collision. No matter the actual type of car accident, if another driver collides with your car while texting and driving, you may suffer severe injuries. Some of the injuries resulting from a texting and driving accident may include:

  • serious traumatic brain injuries
  • spinal cord injuries resulting in paralysis
  • nerve damage
  • amputations
  • aortic dissection
  • broken or fractured bones
  • internal organ injuries
  • bleeding
  • burns
  • bruising
  • lacerations
  • death

Determining Liability in a Texting While Driving Accident

If you suffered injuries due to a car accident, an insurance company would likely start an investigation to determine liability and make determinations regarding your injury to offer a settlement amount for your damages and losses. Never talk to the insurance company without a lawyer present. They will do everything possible to mitigate liability and pay the least amount possible.

In many cases, a police officer at the scene of the accident will interview other drivers and witnesses to determine liability. The police report may indicate that there was evidence that one driver admitted to texting while driving and, therefore, caused the accident. The insurance company will conduct its investigation and likely use information obtained in the police report. A car accident lawyer from The Law Offices of John M. McCabe will help you by:

Negotiating with Insurance Companies

As the insurance company determines liability and settlement amounts for victims, they may use manipulative and deceptive tactics to reduce the settlement amounts they offer to victims. As a result, insurance company negotiations between insurance adjusters and victims can prove sharply adversarial, as insurance companies remain skilled at attempting to use strategies that distort the accident or the victim’s injuries. Some of the types of tactics that an insurance company may utilize against a victim of an accident may include the following:

Get The Best Settlement Possible

In some circumstances, an insurance company of the driver texting while driving may attempt to offer a victim an immediate settlement amount to make the case go away. It is important to note that the first settlement offer given by an insurance company is typically substantially lower than what a victim needs to compensate them for their medical bills, loss of wages due to the inability to return to work, property damage, and pain and suffering.

Gather Evidence of the Accident and Injuries

Insurance companies may attempt to request complete medical records from a victim of a texting-while-driving accident. However, a victim is only responsible for providing medical records related to the car accident only after all those injuries and medical issues have received complete resolution.
