A text message is not an excuse. Wanting to change the song on the radio is not an excuse. Being in a hurry and needing to shave on the way to work is not an excuse. However, these are all reasons someone might look away from the road while driving, and they are all grounds for legal action if they cause an accident.
Our Denton distracted driving accident lawyers have heard a lot of excuses, but drivers are responsible for giving the road proper attention when they’re behind the wheel. Instead of excuses, we want compensation for you and will fight to get it. You’ll have the entire team at Denton car accident lawyers behind you, pursuing every opportunity for compensation.

We Pay Attention to All Your Distracted Driving Accident Damages
Much of what you suffered from your collision might not become evident right away, resolve quickly, or fit into the perfect box an insurer wants to relegate your case. That can mean you face resistance to getting full compensation.
Our distracted driving injury attorneys seek compensation for whatever the accident cost you in the following areas:
- Ambulance rides and ER visits
- Hospital and care facility stays
- Imaging, tests, and surgeries
- Medical equipment and prescriptions
- Physical and psychological therapy
- Lost income from all sources
- Reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Reduced enjoyment of life
Our Denton personal injury lawyers have experience advocating for each of these types of accident expenses. However, we also know that your experience is singular, so we rely on you to guide us. Share with us your financial situation, fallout at your job, and personal losses you’re struggling with. You may be surprised to learn what you can recover compensation for.
You Don’t Have to Be in a Car to Suffer Distracted Driving Injuries
Operating a vehicle while distracted can cause drivers to run lights and signs, veer off the road, or run up on curbs. Victims of these crashes can include bicyclists and pedestrians, who can suffer catastrophic injuries without the protection of a car. We can help you file an injury claim following a bicycle or pedestrian accident.
However, if you did suffer catastrophic injuries, the driver’s insurance policy may not suffice. For instance, a three-day hospitalization can cost an average of $30,000, according to Healthcare.gov—which is the minimum required insurance coverage in Texas for injuries per person. If you spend three weeks in the hospital, you could far exceed the driver’s minimum-required policy limits.
In that case, our team can help you file a lawsuit against the driver for operating their car while distracted. You could recover additional damages directly from the driver.
What Counts as Distracted Driving for a Case in Denton County?
Distracted driving cases result from drivers making choices that violate their duty of care to other road users. For instance, there’s a difference between looking down at your speedometer for a second to ensure you aren’t speeding and looking at your phone to check Instagram.
Distractions that can form the basis of a distracted driving case include the following:
- Texting or calling
- Using social media
- Changing the radio
- Using a GPS
- Talking to passengers
- Operating a rideshare app
Proving Distracted Driving Caused Your Crash
How can you prove after the fact that the driver wasn’t paying attention? We can compare evidence acquired from sources like the following:
- Traffic cameras
- Nearby businesses’ security cameras
- Bystander photos and footage
- Social media posts
- Police reports
- Witness testimony
We’ll also review accident reconstruction reports, expert analysis, and your medical records to piece together what the driver was doing when they hit you.

Is There a Deadline for Seeking Damages for a Distracted Driving Crash?
Whether you file for personal injury or wrongful death in Denton, you typically have two years to file a lawsuit in Texas, according to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003. Our driving while distracted accident attorneys can verify that your case fits into this timeline since some cases can have exceptions to the statute of limitations.
