Representing Texans Injured by Inattentive Drivers

Thousands of Texans are injured every year by drivers who are not paying attention to the road. Technology such as navigation systems, in-car DVD players and smartphones may make it easier to multitask, but they take a driver’s eyes off the road. This leads to serious accidents. If you were involved in a car accident in the Metroplex, an experienced Fort Worth distracted driver accident lawyer can investigate to find out whether distracted driving was the cause. If you know that the other driver was on his or her phone when your accident occurred, be sure to notify your lawyer of that immediately.

At The Law Offices of J. Kent McAfee, P.C., we are dedicated to helping those injured in accidents involving distracted drivers in and around the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Through the leadership of attorney J. Kent McAfee, our firm provides true full-service representation, which includes helping you locate a doctor near your area of work or home so that you can get the treatment you need and ensuring that you do not have to deal with the insurance companies, because our job is to handle that for you.

Examples of Distracted Driving

Many forms of distracted driving contribute to rear-end collisions, rollovers and other types of motor vehicle accidents. Attorney Kent McAfee handles a wide range of these cases, such as those involving:

  • Texting while driving
  • Talking on a cellphone
  • Eating or drinking in the car
  • Adjusting the radio or an in-car video system
  • Putting on makeup
  • Arguing with passengers

More on Cellphone Use

Texas law prohibits texting while driving. However, there is no ban on general cellphone use behind the wheel. Motorists 18 years of age and older are even allowed to use a handheld device to talk on the phone. Some individual cities have passed stricter ordinances, but no matter what the specific rules are in a given location, motorists do use cell phones behind the wheel, putting others in danger.  

Our firm will investigate your accident to determine whether the driver who hit you was talking on the phone or texting. If the answer is yes, we may be able to use that evidence to establish negligence on the part of the other driver, which greatly strengthens your case. We will also use any information you gathered right after the accident, including names and contact information of witnesses, to help build your claim for compensation.
