Texting while driving has proven to be an extremely dangerous and deadly behavior. Most states have some ban or regulations on using handheld devices while driving, including Ohio. If you were injured in an accident that was caused by another driver who was texting while driving, you would likely have a justifiable reason to file a claim or lawsuit against the driver to recover your damages.
You'll need to be able to prove that s/he was texting while driving, though. Indeed, one can only prove negligence like texting and driving through the driver's admission of fault (which is not likely to happen), or by subpoenaing the driver's phone records. The latter usually necessitates an attorney.
Personal injury lawyer David Bressman wants you to get to know your attorney before you make the hire. Before consulting with an accident injury attorney, research the lawyer's credentials. It's not just school and previous experience that makes an attorney. If searching for a lawyer in Columbus, Ohio, consult with attorney David Bressman to discuss your case in person.
