Can I sue a driver who hit me if the driver was texting at the time of the crash?

Published February 12, 2018 by Bruce Millar

If you were hit by a texting driver in Georgia, you certainly have a case and you or your family may need to consider taking legal action.

Our Atlanta, Georgia lawyers for texting and driving car accidents are very experienced in distracted driving and cell phone use cases.  We can obtain – typically through a subpoena – a copy of the at-fault (distracted) driver’s cell/mobile phone bill and records. These records can show whether the driver was texting just before or at the moment of impact, and thus, whether he or she was distracted.

A legal claim for compensation from the driver (or the driver’s insurance company) would demonstrate how the driver’s distraction caused the crash. For instance, if the driver had not been reading a text message, the driver would not have rear-ended your vehicle at an intersection.

Please see our pages on Georgia Distracted Driving cases and Texting while Driving cases, claims and lawsuits to learn more about your legal rights and how to hire a Georgia lawyer for these types of accidents.
