Distracted Drivers

Galveston Car Accident Attorney

When a Driver Is Not Focused on Driving…

Car accidents are often caused by drivers who are focused on many different activities other than driving. Distracted driver accidents are often worse than other accidents, because the driver does not see what is about to happen and fails to take evasive action.

Attorney Lawrence M. Tylka and our law firm’s investigators can examine the evidence from your car accident and determine if the driver who caused the accident was distracted.

From Texting to Reading a Book, Distracted Drivers Are Dangerous

As you drive on highways roads, and streets, you have probably noticed a car that wanders across a lane as the driver talks on a cell phone, texts, or goes through papers in a briefcase. It is more common than ever for people to feel they can multitask while driving — even when studies say it is as dangerous as drunk driving.

Accidents happen because a driver was talking on a cell phone or sending text messages. Eating, drinking and mopping up spills cause accidents. Lighting a cigarette, changing a radio station, watching a movie, reading a book or map, putting on makeup or fiddling with a GPS system can distract a driver and cause an accident.

Holding Distracted Drivers Accountable

Insurance companies aggressively defend against car accident injury claims. If you were injured by a careless driver, you will likely be in an uphill battle to obtain the compensation you need to recover from your losses. This is why it is so important to have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side.

Our lawyers have the experience, skill and resources to fully investigate car accidents and to determine causation and liability. We can help you find the facts and uncover evidence of driver negligence, including:

  • Distracted driving, including texting while driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Lane violations
  • Red light violations
  • Tailgating
  • Road rage

Insurance companies have teams of attorneys and investigators who are employed to help limit and deny compensation for injury victims. Our law firm is on the side of individuals injured in car accidents. We have successfully handled hundreds of car accident injury claims and recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients.
