You Can Pursue Damages
Texting while driving puts others at risk. There could be many kinds of damages you can recover through an insurance claim or lawsuit.
Some types of compensable damages can include:
Accident victims often think that the only things they can get compensation for are the things that cost money. Your injuries likely left you in a lot of pain. You can hold the liable parties responsible for this pain. Financial recovery can also account for your mental anguish and reduced quality of life.
The cost you had to pay after your Wichita Falls texting while driving collision can be included in your claim.
You may be able to receive compensation for the following damages:
- Medical costs: The ambulance, doctors you needed to see after you left the hospital, and any assistive devices you might need (like a wheelchair)
- Mental health care: Therapists, psychiatrists, or medication
- Property damage costs: The cost of replacing or fixing your vehicle
- Transportation costs: If you needed to take the bus or a rideshare service while your car was being repaired
- Cleaning or childcare services: An accident can put victims in challenging positions where they need to hire other people to help them in their day-to-day lives while they recover from their injuries
Additionally, we can help you if you lost your job. Lost tips, wages, benefits, and bonuses that you would have earned if you were working can also be added to your claim. An attorney can provide more information regarding the monetary value of your non-economic damages.

Reasons to Consider Legal Representation
Some people might consider fighting for damages on their own. This does not always end with fair payouts.
Here are some reasons why you may consider teaming up with Loncar Lyon Jenkins:
We Can Advise You on How to Proceed
There are ways to prepare for the series of tasks ahead of you. It is important to be ready, regardless of whether you hire a lawyer or not. You should think about how posting about the accident online could look to insurance companies that might want to take your photos or words out of context.
Additionally, you can track your recovery period in a journal and take photos of your injuries and your car’s damage.
You can also:
- Write down everything you remember about the car accident
- Keep all of your documents relating to your hospital visits, auto repair payments, and doctor’s treatment recommendations so that you can give your attorney all of these things at once
You can learn more about what measures could protect your right to compensation when you call Loncar Lyon Jenkins.
We Will Fight for Your Interests
With a lawyer helping your case, you will not have to deal with tricky or aggressive insurance adjusters. Our goal is to secure a settlement for you. We can do this by handling all negotiations. You can direct any calls you get from the insurance companies to us. You do not have to be bothered by this aspect of the process.
We Will Figure Out How the Accident Happened
If you or the other driver called the police at the accident scene, law enforcement could have created an official report. We will secure this report from the Texas Department of Transportation and look it over to determine who likely caused the accident, how the accident occurred, and who we can interview to affirm your side of the story.
We will listen to your story and put all the pieces together by searching for and finding other forms of evidence.
Some forms of evidence could include:
- Security or traffic camera footage
- Eyewitness, accident reconstructionist, and medical expert testimony
- Weather reports from the day of the accident
One potentially important aspect of your case could be the other driver’s phone records. If we can subpoena these records, they may show the other driver was texting before they hit you. This would help us prove the other party was negligent.
Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 545.4251 states that using a “portable wireless communication device for electronic messaging” while driving is illegal. If the driver of the car that hit you was doing so, they could be liable for your injuries and other losses.
We Will Hold All Responsible Parties Accountable
You might not know about all of the elements of your accident. For instance, there could have been multiple parties involved. The other driver could have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Your Wichita Falls texting while driving accident lawyer could hold the negligent driver (along with any other involved parties) liable.
We Will Not Charge You Anything Upfront
By offering our services on a contingency-fee basis, you can recover physically, emotionally, and financially without paying your lawyer anything upfront. We take our payment from a predetermined portion of your settlement or judgment.
