Take a stand against texting and driving – and get everything you deserve.
In 2012, 3,328 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver, and an additional 421,000 were injured – according to the CDC. Have you been a victim of distracted drivers? These distractions range from talking on the phone to texting while driving. The Law Offices of Thomas More Holland provide you texting and driving lawyer services that fight until you receive the compensation you deserve.
Sadly, the penalty for texting and driving only bring on a $50 fine – but for others, it brings death, hurts and harms, and mental trauma.
Some motorists are convinced that they have everything under control but as a texting and driving lawyer, we can spot deception a mile away. Some motorists may claim:
- Reading a text while driving is safer than sending or writing a text
- Holding the phone near the windshield increases visibility, lessening the risk of an accident
- Increasing space between the driver’s car and the car in front of them creates safer driving while texting
- Some only text at a stop light or stop sign, so they’re “technically not driving”.
What Can TMH Law Do For You As Your Texting and Driving Lawyer?
The Law Offices of Thomas More Holland are here to expose the myths and bring justice to those who are injured and the families who suffer those who have been killed in these horrific accidents. Did you know that 30% of people involved in an accident admit to texting right before the accident occurred? This statistic comes from only those that have admitted, imagine all those who haven’t. This statistic would probably increase drastically if everybody told the truth.
So, if you are involved in a texting and driving injury, these 5 pieces of evidence for your case are essential.
- Police Reports – Whether or not you believe the accident is significant enough, always inform the police when you are involved in an accident, especially texting and driving.
- Videos and Photographs – Lucky for you, you will probably have a cell phone with you so take it out and start taking videos and photographs as evidence. Take evidence of anything from stop signs to skid marks to the condition of the vehicle to the marks on your body. All of these things will serve as evidence of the severity of your case.
- Witness Statements – This is information that may be included in your police report, double check and make sure. If not, record a witness or two that were at the scene to describe what they saw happen.
- Cell Phone Records – With a court order, you will be able to obtain the driver’s cell phone records to prove they were using their phone at the time of the accident. This is something your texting and driving lawyer will obtain for you.
- Medical Records – It is important to visit your doctor as soon as possible after your accident. Even if your injuries seem insignificant, be sure they are recorded in your medical record to use in court as evidence of hurts and harms.
