We Prove Fault In Distracted Driver Cases And Get You Full Compensation

Proving fault in a distracted driving case is not a simple task, but showing evidence that your car accident was caused by distracted driving will be a major boon to your case. Insurance representatives will do everything in their power to reduce the value of your personal injury claim, even if it is clear the other driver was at fault for the accident.

In a trial situation, insurance defense attorneys work aggressively to cast doubt on the value of your medical treatments, the length of your road to recovery, the severity of your injuries and pain, and your future expenses related to accident injuries.

At Schmitt Law Firm, LLC, we will guide you in all legal aspects of your case. We are renowned personal injury trial lawyers with over 75 years of combined legal experience. Our team will handle all communications with insurance representatives and prepare your case for success at trial if the opposition will not settle for the compensation you deserve.

Our attorneys secure the maximum compensation you deserve. In distracted driving accident cases, our Kansas City-based attorneys independently investigate the scene, preserve evidence, record witness testimony and collaborate with medical experts and accident re-constructionists to establish the full value of your claim.

Distracted Driving Is Illegal. You Deserve Justice.

We will investigate for signs of distracted driving by the other driver, including:

  • Texting while driving
  • Reading while driving
  • Surfing the Web or watching videos on a mobile device
  • Eating or drinking while driving
  • Applying makeup while driving
  • Using a GPS device and not watching the road

Our attorneys are talented in establishing fault of the irresponsible driver using evidence found at the scene, damage to vehicles involved in the crash, witness testimony and cellphone records.

Did you know that multiple studies have established that texting while driving is as dangerous as driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08? That’s the legal limit for drunk driving!

If your car accident was caused by texting, the other driver was breaking the law, and you may also be entitled to punitive damages. We will help you understand your full legal options and allow you to make informed decisions throughout the process.
