Our Amarillo Distracted Driving Car Accident Lawyers Recover Damages for Victims
The Amarillo distracted driving crash lawyers from our Texas law firm get justice for our clients by:
- Holding the distracted driver accountable, and
- Recovering fair compensation based on the client’s losses
To do this, we must identify, document, and value the expenses and losses our client incurred because of their accident and injuries. This is different for each case. We investigate what happened and who is liable. As a part of this investigation, our auto accident attorneys also gather evidence of the costs our clients paid because of the crash.
The types of damages we can recover in these cases vary but frequently include:
- Pain and suffering and other non-economic damages
- Present and future medical treatment, care, and support
- Income losses from missing work
- Diminished earning ability due to lasting injuries
- Property damages, such as vehicle repairs
- Related costs with receipts
What Happens When a Victim Dies From Their Crash Injuries?
Under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 71.002(b), spouses, children, and parents of deceased crash victims can pursue a wrongful death case. Our wrongful death attorneys represent these families and help them seek compensation.
Such compensation can include:
- Funeral costs and burial and cremation expenses
- All medical expenses, including those that are unpaid
- Loss of the decedent’s income
- Pain and suffering
- Other damages

Our Amarillo Attorneys Build Strong Distracted Driving Crash Cases
Loncar Lyon Jenkins knows what causes car accidents in Amarillo. The truth is that most crashes occur because of distractions. Drivers who are normally careful and safe drivers might become lost in thought or begin acting “automatically” instead of focusing on their actions. This leads to carelessly violating traffic laws, which in turn causes a crash.
While cognitive distractions are probably very common, many things can cause a driver to take their hands off the wheel or eyes off the road. These are what we tend to think of as distracted driving accidents. This includes:
- Reading or writing text messages
- Talking on a cell phone
- Using the stereo, an app, a navigation system, or other electronics
- Eating and driving
- Reaching for an object inside the vehicle
- Looking at something outside of your vehicle
- Dealing with distracting children or pets in the car
When we build a distracted driving case, many clients are surprised to learn it is not necessary to prove what was distracting the driver. While knowing this could support the case, it is not vital. For example, there is no need to waste time and money to show that a driver was texting when the distraction caused them to run a red light.
As long as we can show the driver violated a traffic law or otherwise breached their duty as a careful driver and that this caused the crash, we can hold them responsible for the damages our client suffered.

How Our Amarillo Collision Attorneys Recover Compensation in a Distracted Driving Crash
When our Amarillo personal injury lawyers manage a distracted driving crash case for a client, there are several ways we can pursue a fair payout for them. Which is the best option for your case? That depends on many factors, and there is no way to know before we learn about the crash and begin the process.
Some ways we recover payouts for clients include:
- Negotiating an accident settlement agreement with the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier
- Using alternative dispute resolution techniques, such as mediation
- Taking a lawsuit to a civil trial and asking the jury to award compensation
If the driver who hit you doesn’t have insurance or does not have enough insurance to cover your damages, we could seek to file an accident claim against your uninsured/uninsured (UM/UIM) motorist policy. This policy could cover your vehicle, medical expenses, and other accident-related losses.
How Soon Do I Need to Hire an Amarillo Car Accident Lawyer?
We encourage potential clients to contact us as soon as their injuries allow. Call us to discuss your next steps in the first days or weeks after a crash to give us the best chance to build a compelling case for maximum compensation. Evidence can disappear over time.
We generally have up to two years to file a personal injury lawsuit based on Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, the state’s statute of limitations deadline. However, it is important we know about your case well before this deadline arrives.
