How can you prove the driver who caused the accident was texting and why is this important in a Louisville personal injury case? This is one of the many reasons it is important to work with the highly recommended and experienced accident and injury attorneys at Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington, PLLC (HLH). As your attorney, we are able to gain access to the other driver’s cell phone records and prove the driver who caused the accident was texting.
This is important as it applies directly to issues of comparative negligence and assessing who was genuinely at fault in the accident.
In order to prove the driver who caused the accident was texting our attorneys must file a personal injury claim and lawsuit. Our skilled trial attorneys use the process of discovery to request the phone records of the other driver. If the other party or their lawyer refuses to provide the records HLH attorneys will seek a subpoena to compel the cell phone carrier to provide the necessary records.
These records can then easily be examined to determine if any texts were being sent or received or if the phone was accessing the internet or other communications at the time of the car accident. Most insurance companies will deny the liability of their client and attempt to cast doubt on the cause of the accident. HLH attorneys work aggressively to get the evidence needed while protecting our client’s rights.
Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents resulting in serious injury in Louisville and throughout the State of Kentucky. If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident in Louisville or Central or Southwest Kentucky we invite you to read the strong recommendations of our clients and the legal industry and contact HLH or call (866) 583-9701 for a free consultation.
