When someone is involved in a car accident, there are usually multiple factors that go into determining who is at fault and how much the claim is worth. In some situations, this can be complicated further by the fact that one party might have an external factor impinging on their ability to drive safely at the time of the incident, such as cases of distracted driving.

In many instances of distracted driving, it may not be as clear-cut as drunk or intoxicated. While you cannot drink and drive, many other activities could lead to a driver being distracted while operating a motor vehicle. Learn more about how to prove another driver was distracted during your car accident claim by partnering with Kash Legal. We can help with any questions about the legal process that you may have.

What Is Distracted Driving?

Distracted driving is any type of activity that diverts attention away from the safe operation of a motor vehicle. It can result from talking or texting on a cell phone, eating and drinking in the car, talking to other passengers, using in-vehicle technology like navigation systems, or any other activity that takes the driver’s eyes off the road or their mind off of driving.

Causes of Distracted Driving Accidents

Texting while driving is one of the most common and dangerous types of distracted driving. It requires the driver to take their eyes off the road, at least one hand off the wheel, and their mind off of what’s in front of them. Even a momentary distraction can have tragic consequences. 

Distracted driving car accidents can be caused by a myriad of activities, but any activity that takes the driver’s attention away from driving can be dangerous and cause an accident.

How To Prove Your Case Was Due to Distracted Driving

If you are in an accident and believe that the other driver was distracted, there are a few ways you can try to prove it. One is to ask the police for a copy of the accident report, which may mention if the driver was distracted.

Your lawyer can also request phone records from the time of the crash. If the records show that the driver was using their phone at the time of the accident, it is likely that they were distracted while driving. However, if the records do not show any phone usage at the time of the crash, it could be more difficult to prove that distracted driving was a factor in the accident.

Hire Kash Legal to Help Build Your Distracted Driving Case

If you were involved in an accident where another driver was distracted and it led to your injuries, you might have difficulty proving fault. Distracted driving is becoming more common, and it can range from someone eating while driving, adjusting their GPS devices or mirrors, talking on the phone without a hands-free device, texting, or even partaking in personal grooming like putting on lipstick with a rearview mirror.

When another driver shirks their responsibility to be safe behind the wheel, they may owe you compensation due to their own gross negligence.
