Texting While Driving Accidents

Car Accident Lawyer in Omaha, Nebraska

Domina Law Group represents grieving families after catastrophic car accidents. Whether you yourself were injured or your loved one was injured or killed in a crash, we invite you to contact an Omaha car accident attorney at our firm to learn your legal rights and options. One of the most common causes of car accidents in the United States is distracted driving – specifically, texting while driving.

Texting drivers are one of the most dangerous types of drivers because they are subject to three different types of impairment: cognitive, visual, and manual.

Nebraska Auto Accident Statistics

According to the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety, there were 3,672 distraction related crashes in Nebraska in 2013. Out of those, 1,265 resulted in injury and 14 were fatal. These statistics concern all types of distraction-related incidents in Nebraska. As far as cellphone specific incidents are concerned, in 2013, there were 146 total crashes in Nebraska. Out of those, 64 resulted in injury. On a national scale, approximately 3,000 people are killed every year due to distracted driving.

Obtaining Cellphone Records and Proving Negligence

If you or someone you love was involved in a car accident with a distracted or texting driver, there are multiple ways an attorney can help you. First, attorneys are consistently able (on average) to secure more compensation for accident victims than they would have been able to obtain on their own.

Second, and perhaps more important, is that an attorney has access to resources that could improve the outcome of your case. Specifically, cellphone records. Cellphone records could be obtained via the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA). If records show that the driver was sending or receiving a text message at the time of your crash, this could be sufficient to prove negligence.
