Proving That Someone Was Texting While Driving
In some cases, proving that the negligent driver was texting at the time of the auto accident is a straightforward matter. Perhaps witnesses saw the driver holding a cellphone prior to the accident. In other cases, investigation may be necessary. If needed, we can request records from the negligent driver’s phone company. These records will show whether text messages were sent or received around the time of the accident. We will use this proof as the basis for a claim designed to get you maximum compensation.
