We Help People Injured By Distracted Drivers
Even with all the information out there about the dangers of distracted driving, people still use their cellphones behind the wheel and cause devastating car accidents. Distracted driving is a form of negligence. If you have been injured by a distracted driver in the Dallas area, the personal injury lawyers at Cortez Law Firm, PLLC, can help you get the compensation you need for medical bills, lost income and other costs resulting from the wreck.
Did Someone Witness The Other Driver’s Distraction?
We thoroughly investigate car accident cases. When distracted driving causes a wreck, there may be witnesses who saw the driver engaging in distracting behavior — for example, using a cellphone or reaching into the back seat. There may also be surveillance or stop light video to prove the driver’s distraction. In some cases, it is possible to obtain cellphone data to show that a driver was distracted just before a collision. Our attorneys have decades of experience and can investigate your case for any evidence proving the other driver’s fault.
When Distracted Drivers Also Don’t Have Insurance
Often distracted drivers are irresponsible in multiple ways, including failing to have insurance. If you were injured by a driver with no insurance or with inadequate insurance, you may still have options for obtaining the compensation you need for your injuries.
Many people don’t realize that they have uninsured / underinsured motorist coverage as part of their insurance policy. This type of insurance is meant to cover injury and accident costs when the at-fault driver does not have insurance. Our attorneys can review your insurance policy to determine whether uninsured / underinsured motorist coverage can be used in your case. These are complex insurance claims, so it is best to get help from an experienced attorney.
