If someone else caused your accident because they were texting while driving, you may be able to seek compensation for medical expenses, income losses, and more.
Our lawyers serving Wichita Falls can handle every step of your case, fighting for the best possible settlement or award. What’s more, it costs nothing upfront to get started.
Damages You Could Seek After an Accident
Accidents can leave you to face all kinds of expenses. However, you don’t have to shoulder these costs on your own. If someone else caused the crash, they could be liable for paying you.
Damages that may be available in your case include:
- Emotional distress
- Physical disfigurement
- Loss of income (past and future)
- Reduced earning capacity (past and future)
- And more
A loss doesn’t have to have a clear dollar value attached to it in order to be considered as part of your injury case, as even less tangible losses could be part of your case value. While these are more complicated to valuate, we can handle that task for you.
Keep in mind that it’s possible to seek compensation for the losses that affected you in the past and that will affect you in the future. For instance, if your doctor is telling you that your injuries require surgeries and physical therapy, these estimated costs could also be factored into your claim or lawsuit.

Frequently Asked Questions About Texting While Driving Cases
Insurance claims and lawsuits can be complicated. We’re here to answer your questions and ensure that you understand every step of your case.
How do I Know If I Have a Case?
This is likely your first question. The short answer is: if someone else caused your accident, you most likely have the right to seek compensation.
Keep in mind that you could still seek compensation even if you are partly responsible for the crash. According to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 33.001, you can pursue compensation from the other driver as long as you aren’t deemed more than 50% at fault.
How Much Could My Case Be Worth?
Your case value depends on a number of factors, including:
- The severity of your injuries
- How much your medical expenses cost (and will cost)
- How liable the other party was for the crash
- How much the accident affected your daily life and career
Typically, the more severely an accident affects your health and your life and the more expenses you incur, the higher your potential settlement value or award. We can investigate your accident and tell you more about what you could seek.
Can I File a Lawsuit Against a Driver Who Was Texting?
Your case will typically start out as an insurance claim. If it is possible to negotiate a fair offer and agree to a settlement, we will do so. This is often the most efficient route that will allow you to secure a check sooner rather than later.
However, we may advise pursuing a lawsuit if the insurer won’t agree to a fair offer. In this case, we can prepare your case for trial and represent you in court.
How Can I Prove that a Driver Was Texting While Driving?
Texting and driving is illegal in Texas, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. It is possible that the other driver was cited for distracted driving at the time of the crash, and if so, we can use the citation as evidence for your case.
If they were not ticketed, we can still investigate and seek out other possible sources of evidence to build your case. We can work to gather:
- Cell phone records from the other driver
- Footage from local traffic cameras
- Eyewitness testimony
- And more
Even if the other driver wasn’t cited for texting while driving, a lawyer from our team could also use any other evidence of distraction to build your case, such as weaving or improperly changing lanes.
