Having a smartphone nearby is almost a necessity these days. However, when behind the wheel, there is no reason a driver should be talking or texting (even worse!) while driving. In fact, texting while driving is extremely dangerous and the cause of countless serious injury and death. Statistics even show that drivers are 23 times more likely to crash if texting while driving.

Distracted Driving and Personal Injury Lawsuits
If a person is texting while behind the wheel, he or she is choosing to look at a phone or another device instead of considering other drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and others sharing the road. There is no reason for this, and any injuries sustained from a distracted driver could have been avoidable if the driver has chosen to focus on the road.
For this reason, victims of this injustice can seek financial compensation in Missouri courts. In nearly every car accident and personal injury lawsuit, one crucial element is showing fault. You need to prove that the other party was acting in a negligent manner and that his/her negligence led to your injuries.
Through eyewitness testimony, police reports, and other documents, such as documents showing the texts the driver was sending, we will attempt to prove to Missouri civil courts that the other driver was negligent and caused your injuries.
Financial Compensation in a Distracted Driving Case
In addition to the plethora of emotions that you may experience after a terrifying incident that caused injury, you may also be facing medical bills, physical therapy bills, and other financial damages (such as loss of income from work and loss of future earning capacity).
By holding the other party(s) responsible in Missouri courts, our goal is to help you receive a settlement that covers these expenses.
