When we think of car accidents caused by negligence, we usually think of another driver whose careless or reckless conduct led to the crash. Sometimes, however, a car wreck and the injuries that follow aren’t the fault of those we share the road with. Sometimes, the cause of an accident is the road itself.
As in any car accident injury lawsuit, a person seeking compensation for injuries suffered in a distracted driving accident must prove that the defendant’s negligence caused the accident and injuries. This means proving to a judge or jury that the driver was, in fact, distracted or looking at something other than the road ahead of them at the time of the collision. Fortunately, distracted driving by its very nature often comes with ample evidence to establish fault.
