Injured in a Texting While Driving Accident

If you are reading this, you may already be dealing with all the financial and emotional issues of a motorcycle injury accident. As a motorcycle rider in Texas, you already know that car drivers don't always see you when they should. Unfortunately, when other drivers don't pay attention to their surroundings, they create dangerous situations that can lead to serious injury accidents, and one of the most common distractions for motorists is texting while driving. It may have been this very behavior that caused your accident. Fortunately, you don't have to deal with the aftermath of your accident alone, and the negligent driver who caused your accident does not have to get away with it.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle collision that was caused by a driver who was texting while driving, Ray King of King Law Firm, can help. As a knowledgeable Austin motorcycle injury attorney, he can investigate the details of your case to determine fault and gather the appropriate evidence to present a strong case on your behalf. By taking legal action against the at-fault driver, you can get the money you need to recover from your injuries and support your family.

Texas Texting Laws

To prove negligence, you don't necessarily need to prove that the driver broke the law. Texas does not have a texting ban for all drivers. As of December 2012, the selective texting ban only applies to:

  • bus drivers carrying a passenger 17-years-old or younger,
  • drivers travelling through school crossing zones, and
  • drivers 17-years-old or younger.

If the driver who caused your accident was in violation of any of these laws and received a citation for it, it would definitely help your case, but not having such a violation does not mean that you won't be able to hold the at-fault driver accountable.

Presenting Strong Evidence

Building a case for injury compensation can become very complicated, which is why it is beneficial to have an experienced attorney on your side. There are many factors that may make it easier or harder to prove your case, which is why making sure you present the right evidence is essential. Witness statements, the police report, medical records, and potentially cell phone records could be used to prove your need for compensation. A knowledgeable attorney knows what evidence is needed, how to get it, and how to fight the insurance companies that may try to use their own evidence against you.

Dedicated to Protecting Your Legal Rights

Texting while driving takes a driver's attention completely off the road and the task of driving, and it is one of the most dangerous types of driver distraction. It is a clear act of negligence and can cause serious, potentially disabling, and possibly fatal injuries to motorcyclists. As a rider himself, Ray King accepts the inherent risks of motorcycle riding, but these risks are not what typically cause accidents.

If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a motorcycle accident caused by a driver who made the choice to text when they were supposed to be driving, dedicated Texas motorcycle crash lawyer Ray King can help you recover compensation to cover damages such as medical costs, lost wages, lost future income, funeral costs, and pain and suffering. Your rights and your future deserve to be protected. Contact King Law Firm today to discuss your particular situation at (512) 375-4455.
