Connecticut Distracted Driving Accident Attorney

Texting and Driving Accidents in Connecticut

Distracted driving is something that has been brought to public attention recently. The most common types of distracted driving happen inside the car. Actions, like eating, drinking, smoking, or even reaching across the back seat for an item that fell underneath, can all be considered distracted driving and cause serious and fatal accidents.

Another major form of distraction on the road is texting and driving. The technological advances made in the world of cell phones have arguably made connecting with friends and family easier, but unfortunately, they have also introduced a whole array of distractions while driving. We must be truthful—texting while driving is a serious issue among teens and adults alike. A distraction like texting can cause drivers to get in major auto accidents, not to mention the traffic violation fines if caught.

If you are injured in an accident and you believe the other person was texting or on their phone while driving, you need to contact our team. Our distracted driving accident attorneys at Goff Law Group can help you seek the settlement you deserve from the driver at fault. The only way to put a stop to texting and driving is by holding the distracted drivers accountable for their negligence and we can help you do that.

In any type of traffic collision in Connecticut, the odds are somewhat high that something was distracting the at-fault driver at the time of the collision. Unfortunately, proving distracted driving can be difficult, especially if the at-fault driver denies liability.

How to Prove Someone Was Texting and Driving

If your accident was caused by a driver texting and driving, you’ll need to prove that in court.

Our team can help you determine if a person was using their phone by reviewing the following:

  • Make sure to cite the exact time of the accident. Take a screen capture of your phone time/date or take a picture of the clock in your vehicle.
  • Ask witnesses if they saw the person texting or looking down at their phone and ask for their contact information to give to your attorney, insurance adjuster, and the law enforcement on scene.
  • Ask the person if they were texting. Quite often, out of shock, people will be honest about what they are doing.
  • Obtain cell phone records to prove if the driver was texting at the time of the accident
  • Take photos of the vehicle outside, and inside. You may be able to prove they were on their phone based on the location of the cell phone in the vehicle.
  • Appeal to the jury members or those who are making decisions by discussing how we have all seen a driver, or been a driver, who is looking down at their phone.

Utilizing these tools, and others honed by our experienced attorneys, helps us to build a strong case on your behalf. We will pursue your settlement with your best interest in mind, from start to finish.
