Is Texting & Driving Against the Law?
Municipalities throughout Missouri are passing laws against texting and driving, and the states may not be far behind. The fact that texting and driving is not only frowned upon, but actually illegal, can make our case against the negligent driver stronger.
Investigating Distracted Driver Accident Claims
In many cases, we do not find out that texting and driving caused and accident until we are deep into our investigation. The victim may not have seen any indication but perhaps a witness noticed the driver that caused an accident looking down.
To determine whether texting and driving took place at the time of the accident we must be very precise in our investigation. We will need to get exact times from witnesses in terms of when the accident happened. Then we will need to get records from the cell phone company that show the phone was being used at that exact time. When successful, this creates a strong case against the negligent driver.
