In our previous blog post, we discussed how important it is for drivers to focus on driving instead of other things like cellphones and passengers. Distracted driving accidents can be very serious accidents that lead to severe injuries. We know that people who are struck by a distracted driver might be mad. You can turn that anger into action by filing a claim for compensation.

When you decide to seek compensation for a distracted driving accident, you will need to gather evidence that can back up your side of the events. This can include showing the factors that were components of the accident. For example, if the person who struck you was on the phone or texting at the time of the accident, you need to show that as part of your case. This can be done by presenting cellphone records in court.

Other evidence, such as police reports and medical records, might also be necessary. Essentially, you should gather anything you can that will show that the other driver caused the accident, that the accident led to your injuries and that you suffered damages because of the injuries you suffered.

We understand that trying to gather all of the information you need in your case can seem overwhelming. We can help you to get the information, such as cellphone records, that can be used to show what really happened at the time of the accident. Ideally, we would like to start gathering the information and evidence for your case as soon as possible after the accident.
