If another motorist’s texting while driving led to your Garland collision, an accident lawyer from our team may be able to help. Loncar Lyon Jenkins can fight to recover compensation based on the injuries, financial losses, and emotional damages you suffered.
Our team provides complimentary consultations to accident victims and their families across Texas. We can explain how our car accident lawyers can pursue a payout for you with no out-of-pocket expenses.
You Can Get Compensation for Your Distracted Driving Collision and Injuries
If you can show that the other driver caused your Garland collision and it left you with physical, financial, and even emotional damages, you may be able to recover compensation. While Loncar Lyon Jenkins prepares every case as if it is going to trial, we may not necessarily have to do so.
It may be possible to secure a payout through:
- A car insurance claim based on the distracted driver’s policy
- Suing the distracted driver in civil court, should the negotiations with the insurance company fail to result in a fair offer
The potentially recoverable damages are similar in both a court trial and an insurance claim but are dependent on the specific losses and expenses you incurred. These recoverable losses could include:
- Medical bills to date
- Future treatment and care costs
- Lost income
- Diminished ability to earn
- Vehicle repairs
- Additional documented expenses
- Pain and suffering
You May Be Able to Recover Wrongful Death Damages if You Lost a Loved One
Texas law, specifically Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 71.002, allows family members of fatal accident victims to hold the at-fault driver responsible for additional damages through a wrongful death case.
Eligible immediate family members may be able to recover damages that include:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Services and support previously provided by their loved one
- Other intangible losses
You deserve to grieve in peace with your loved ones, not hassle with the legal process. While you honor the memory of your loved one, we can get to work seeking fair compensation. Potential damages could help your family come in your loved one’s absence.

Texting and Driving Is Illegal in Texas
According to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), it is illegal to text and drive in Texas. Some municipalities have additional restrictions on handling a cell phone while driving. However, there continues to be a significant issue with texting behind the wheel and other distractions.
If a texting driver caused your Garland crash, you may be able to prove their reckless actions and hold them accountable. The Loncar Lyon Jenkins team believes you should not have to pay for their bad behavior. We want to help you prove they are responsible for your accident-related expenses and losses.

What You Need to Prove to Recover Compensation for Your Garland Collision
If one of our car accident lawyers handles your case, we will take care of gathering the necessary evidence to support your claim and taking steps to recover a payout in your case. You can focus on healing from your injuries.
It may come as a surprise that we do not necessarily have to show the other driver was texting to recover compensation. Texting may have contributed to the collision, but other forms of negligent actions may have been more visible to witnesses. For instance, we only need to find evidence that the driver changed lanes without due care or failed to stop at a red light.
To prove negligence, we will work to show that:
- There was a traffic law stipulating what the driver should do.
- They failed to obey this law.
- Their actions caused the collision.
- You were hurt and suffered financial losses.
Deadlines for Suing the Texting Driver Who Caused Your Collision
There is generally a two-year deadline for suing the texting driver who caused your Garland crash. Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003 establishes this deadline for most personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits. Missing the deadline could mean you cannot recover compensation in your case.
Some circumstances may also greatly affect this deadline. It may be extended or reduced based on the facts of your case. Our team will determine the appropriate timeline for your case during your free consultation.
