Impulse control is part of driving responsibly. It might not seem like a big deal to give in to the impulse to check a text or put on makeup, but distraction can cause injuries and cost lives. The driver who puts satisfying their impulses above your safety should be held accountable, and that’s what our Tyler distracted driving car accident lawyers are here to do.
With the team at Loncar Lyon Jenkins on your side, you can seek compensation for everything this accident has deprived you of health, income, career advancement, independence, and enjoyment. Our Tyler car accident lawyers are available 24/7 to talk about your case.
We Know Distracted Driving Car Accident Cases, and We Know Texas
Proving that a driver wasn’t paying attention at the time of your accident requires gathering specific evidence. You want a legal team that knows what that evidence is and can use it to structure an argument for your financial and non-economic damages.
At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our lawyers have experience with:
- Navigating Texas distracted driving laws, at-fault driver laws, and statutes of limitations
- Filing and managing insurance claims on your behalf
- Recognizing what insurance adjusters look for when reviewing your claim
- Accessing police reports, medical records, and other documentation
- Negotiating insurance settlements for distracted driving cases
- Determining if and when to file a personal injury lawsuit
We Know What Could Prove Relevant
We can conduct a targeted investigation to prove the driver who hit you was distracted. That means tracking down witnesses, reconstructing the accident with the help of experts, and going over official reports. Video from traffic cameras, local businesses, dash cams, or bystanders could show the accident from multiple angles, capturing the driver’s inattention.
Delving into the driver could also shed light on the case. For instance, we can check if they posted on social media during the crash. Similarly, if they worked as a rideshare driver, their activity in the app could make both them and the rideshare company liable. We will explore any and every possibility when investigating your case.
We Know What the Other Party Might Say
Our Tyler personal injury lawyers are familiar with the tactics used by drivers, especially in the context of Texas law. According to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §33.001, you can seek damages if you were under 51 percent responsible. Unfortunately, that means the other driver or their insurance company will try to place more blame on you.
We are prepared for this and can compile evidence to show their level of fault. We can also fight against other tactics used to undervalue your claim:
- Leaving off future losses or pain and suffering in a settlement offer
- Pressuring you to agree to a settlement before you fully understand the terms
- Not honoring policy terms that should apply to your case
- Dragging out the claims process or posing unnecessary requirements
Contact our distracted driving lawyers if you encounter these or any other attempts to turn your claim around and pose you as the at-fault driver in your Tyler motor vehicle accident case.

Loncar Lyon Jenkins Seeks the Max for Distracted Driving Car Crash Losses
When we say “maximum compensation,” we mean we pursue a settlement that accounts for every consequence you face. Rather than seeking an average settlement for a car accident, we seek just compensation for each and every one of your losses.
To maximize compensation for your financial damages, we catalog everything—every expense, every bill, every missed opportunity for income, every change to your life—and present it in our case for economic and noneconomic compensation. Insurance companies often leave out certain costs, like using an Uber while your car is in the shop. They can also ignore big ones, like the future costs of certain conditions like spinal cord injuries or whiplash. We keep an eye out for both.
We can also track and pursue claims related to your:
- Medical attention
- Recovery costs
- Pain management
- Other medical expenses, such as equipment
- Lost income
- Reduced ability to earn
- Emotional pain and suffering
- Mental health issues
- Reduced enjoyment of life
Our Car Collision Lawyers Can Hold More than the Distracted Driver Liable
The distracted driver who hit you may seem like the most obvious person to pursue for applicable damages. However, alternative or additional liable parties could exist, and our auto accident attorneys are prepared to consider them.
One possibility is pursuing a business that employed or contracted the driver. Even though the negligent driver was to blame, some businesses are responsible for the actions of those working for them. If you were hit while the driver was on company time, operating a rideshare, or driving a truck, we could explore filing a claim with their corporation’s insurance company.
You also might have been the victim of additional negligence. If your brakes, airbags, or seatbelt failed, worsening your injuries, our Tyler product liability lawyers can seek a claim for damages from the manufacturer.

Our Tyler Distracted Driving Car Accident Lawyers Push for a Resolution
The statute of limitations in Texas for personal injury or wrongful death is two years, according to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §16.003. That time frame allows us to investigate, save evidence from getting lost, forgotten, or damaged, and work on reaching a settlement agreement.
We can even use the statute of limitations as a bargaining tool. We can work on negotiating a settlement and then file a lawsuit if the other party isn’t amenable. The simple act of filing can sometimes prompt all parties to work harder to reach an agreement.
If all else fails, our distracted driving attorneys are willing to go to court for your Tyler car collision case. For that reason, we’re called the Strong Arm—we act as your muscle, pushing hard for a successful conclusion to your case, whatever it takes.
