Texting and Driving Accident Lawyer in Bryan-College Station
What is Texting and Driving?
The number of car crashes due to distracted driving and cell phone use has sky rocketed. Texting, cell phone apps, online music and podcasts are all dangerous combinations with driving. Our communities are becoming more congested, with busy highways and roadways. Sadly, more and more drivers have become involved in cell phone-related car accidents. Though most states outlaw the use of cell phones while driving or mandate “hands free only” use of cell phones while behind the wheel, drivers are still texting and driving. We all see it every day. A driver who is distracted by text messaging or checking e-mail can lead to severe injuries and automobile crashes.
In most cases, we collaborate with expert engineers, medical providers and life care planners in order to determine the best possible medical and legal help for our injured clients. We consult with your medical providers when necessary to ensure thorough diagnosing and treatment of your injuries.
We investigate each crash thoroughly including a review and analysis of the at-fault driver’s cell phone records. There are nearly 400 million cell phones in the United States. Cell phones store a lot of useful data and a cell phone carrier maintains call detail records that not only show when a call or text was made, but also shows the caller’s approximate location at the beginning and end of each call. This data can show whether a driver was talking and texting at the time of the crash and where the driver was located when the call or text was made. This information will help determine the cell phone driver’s route and approximate speed from point A to point B and is useful at times in determining whether driver fatigue played a role in the crash.
