Did somebody hit you texting while driving or on their phone?

Drivers in San Antonio need to focus on the road at all times. Otherwise, they could cause a serious car accident that results in severe injuries. Unfortunately, some drivers don’t take driving seriously and cause crashes due to being distracted.

There are many different forms of driver distraction. And each one requires its own unique approach. That’s why it’s important to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible if you or a loved one was injured in a distracted driving accident on I-10 or a major road like West Commerce Street in San Antonio.

That’s because we have been representing injury victims in San Antonio and throughout Texas for decades. We’re here for you when you need us most.

Common driver distractions

Texting and driving has become one of the most common causes of distracted driving accidents in San Antonio and elsewhere. But it’s not the only reason why distracted drivers cause crashes. Other common causes of distracted driving accidents include:

  • Operating a GPS while driving.
  • Changing a radio station while driving.
  • Eating while driving.
  • Personal grooming while driving.
  • Watching cell phone videos while driving.

It’s impossible to imagine anyone doing any of these things while driving. Sadly, drivers do these things all the time and many other activities that divert their attention away from the road. And when they do, they need to be held accountable for their actions. That’s our job.

How we can help you

You might think you don’t need a lawyer if a distracted driver caused your San Antonio car accident. Depending on the location of your accident, all you have to do is call the San Antonio police or the Texas Highway Patrol and they’ll take care of everything.

Don’t be so sure. In many cases, many distracted driving accidents turn out to be much more complicated than many people initially suspect. That’s because distracted drivers often deny doing anything wrong. They may even try to claim that you caused the collision.

And then there are insurance companies. They often do everything they can to reduce or deny your accident claim. That’s because they know there’s often thousands of dollars or even more at stake. But the bottom line is you didn’t do anything wrong. You shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s reckless behavior. Contact our law firm. We can help you demand justice.
