Filing a Texas Car Accident Claim When a Distracted Driver Causes You Harm

Posted by John J. Kahn, Jr. | Feb 24, 2012 | 0 Comments

Any kind of distraction that causes drivers to divert their attention could lead to a Texas car accident claim. If you were the victim of a negligent driver who failed to exercise caution behind the wheel, you may be able to recover damages. To protect your rights, you should schedule a consultation with a Houston auto accident personal and injury law firm.

Driver Distractions that Could Lead to a Car Accident Claim

A distraction could be anything that lures drivers to take their hands off the wheel, their eyes off the road or their mind off of driving. Common distractions include:
  • texting;
  • talking on a cell phone;
  • eating or drinking;
  • applying makeup or shaving;
  • reading a map or other material;
  • putting data in a navigation system;
  • adjusting music; and
  • watching a video. 
Text messaging while driving is arguably the most alarming distraction because it requires manual, visual and cognition attention. However, any kind of distraction could lead to an accident with serious injuries. As a victim, you have every right to fight for compensation. A Houston lawyer can review your case, and, if negligence can be proven, help you hold the other driver accountable. It would be in your best interest to contact a Houston auto accident personal injury law firm as soon after your accident as possible.

Contacting a Houston Lawyer after a Car Accident

When you have experienced legal representation on your side after a car accident, you can rest assured that your attorney will fight for all compensation to which you may be entitled, including past, current and future medical expenses; pain and suffering; lost earnings or earning potential; or wrongful death benefits.

While you focus on your recovery and emotional wellbeing, you should have a Houston lawyer at The Kahn Law Firm advocating for your rights. Contact us today – 1-713-226-9900 or toll free 1-844-301-KAHN.
