People are increasingly being injured by drivers who are distracted while operating a car. The rise of smartphones has led to more people texting, checking email, or updating social media while they are behind the wheel of a car. Such conduct may seem harmless to the driver at the time, but their poor choices can result in catastrophic injury to others. Noteboom – The Law Firm handles car accident and injury cases, which stem from distracted driving, in Fort Worth as well as other areas of Texas. Contact our office today if you require a personal injury lawyer. Our attorneys are ready to assist you.
Texas law requires one to use reasonable care while driving a car. If one chooses to engage in distracting conduct, such as talking on a cell phone or texting while driving then they are not using such care. When one breaches their duty of driving responsibly, and another is harmed as a result, then you can recover for your damages. Such matters may require you to prove that the other driver was engaging in distracting behavior as such drivers will often not admit it to a police officer. Hiring an attorney who understands how to prove such cases may be crucial to the outcome of your situation.
