Texting While Driving
Helping the injured recover damages in West Virginia
When individuals break the law and text while driving, they can cause the motorists around them injuries, from more minor cuts and scrapes and broken bones, to more serious injuries such as brain injuries. The Charleston car accident attorneys at Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC help victims recover the compensation they deserve.
All drivers have a duty of care to the other motorists around them, and when they drive in a negligent, distracted manner and it results in injury to someone else, they can be held liable for damages. When drivers are texting, they take their eyes off of the road, their hands off of the wheel and their minds off of driving. The result is often an accident that leaves people hurt.
After being injured in a car accident caused by a texting driver, you may require surgery, hospitalization, doctor visits, physical therapy and medication. The expenses can add up quickly. And in the meantime, you may be unable to work because of your injuries.
You have legal rights after a texting and driving accident
After an accident involving a driver who was texting, you can fight for damages such as medical bills, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, lost wages and earning potential, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, when applicable, and long-term medical care when necessary.
Drivers who were texting often deny responsibility, and the insurance company will fight to pay you as little as possible. That's why we investigate your accident ourselves. We know where to look for evidence that proves the other driver was texting. We build a strong case that the insurance company has to take seriously. If they won't negotiate a settlement that meets your needs, our attorneys will be ready to fight them in court.
