Car Accident Caused by a Driver on a Cell Phone
There is no easy way to get through the many challenges an auto collision often creates for those injured due to another’s carelessness. The complexity of the law surrounding cell phone car accidents can seem overwhelming. Luckily, with the help of an experienced Waco car accident lawyer, accident survivors can ensure their legal rights are protected and upheld.
At the trial law firm of Williams & Brown LLP, we level the playing field for our clients as they go up against major corporations and/or insurance companies. We believe that negligent companies should be held legally responsible when their carelessness causes injury to innocent parties.

Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable in Texas
Cell phone related crashes cause serious injury or death, and it is difficult to live with the aftermath of the crash, knowing it could have been prevented had the driver been focusing on the responsibility of operating the vehicle safely, and not driving while distracted.
If you or someone you care about has suffered a serious injury in a car crash because another driver was using his or her cell phone to text or have a conversation, you may have a valid claim or lawsuit to recover the money damages you have sustained. Although driving while talking on a cell or texting is not against the law in Texas, drivers who do this and cause an accident involving injury or death may still be held liable.
Justice through Compensation for Damages
Based on the particular details of an individual’s case, compensation may be obtained for medical expenses, including hospitalization, surgery, physical therapy, prescription medication costs, and more. A person may also be entitled to money damages for lost wages or benefits for periods of time away from work because of an injury. In some circumstances, an individual may never be able to work again.
Depending on the severity of an injury, home care or renovations may be necessary, and monetary compensation can help relieve financial strain of providing this care. For damages that are far deeper than finances, such as trauma, physical pain, loss of consortium, and emotional distress, the law allows compensation for these damages as well. While no amount of money can undo the unthinkable, accident survivors often find peace of mind knowing justice was won and negligent parties are accountable for the damage they caused.
