Our Carrollton Car Accident Attorneys Know How Distracted Driving Causes Crashes
At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our Carrollton auto accident lawyers know how to build a case based on a distracted driving crash. We know how visual, manual, and cognitive distractions lead to crashes and how to develop strong cases to hold distracted drivers accountable for their negligent actions.
Some of the most common types of distractions that could cause collisions in Carrollton include:
- Sending or reading text messages
- Eating or drinking behind the wheel
- Using a smartphone app
- Entering an address into a GPS
- Selecting or changing music
- Interacting with pets or children in the car
- Giving attention to anything besides the road in front of you and your surroundings
It is often unnecessary for us to document the distraction or even prove a driver was distracted when a crash occurred. Distractions cause accidents by making drivers act carelessly behind the wheel, often violating a traffic law and causing a collision. We only need to document that:
- The distracted driver owed you a duty of care, usually based on a traffic law
- They breached their duty by violating that law
- Their breach of duty caused the accident
- The accident caused our client’s injuries and financial losses
We will investigate the cause of the crash, using the police report, eyewitness statements, videos from the scene, expert testimony, and other evidence to develop a compelling case. This is often the best way to recover fair compensation in a car accident claim or lawsuit.

How Our Carrollton Car Accident Lawyers Handle Distracted Driving Cases
Your Carrollton personal injury lawyer will use the compelling case they build against the distracted driver to convince the driver’s insurance company they will not win in court. We aim to present strong evidence against their policyholder and demand they pay you fairly or face a lawsuit. This is often effective in reaching a fair agreement and closing the case.
Sometimes, we may need to take additional steps to win compensation for our client. This could include filing a lawsuit and continuing negotiations, preparing the case and taking it to a jury trial, or using mediation or arbitration. Our team can assess your options during your free initial consultation.
The best option for your case will depend greatly on your unique circumstances. For example, we might need to sue sooner than we normally would if the deadline set by Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003 is quickly approaching. This statute generally gives us up to two years to sue in a wrongful death or personal injury case, but some exceptions exist.
