Did Another Driver’s Distracted Driving Cause Your Injuries?
Tennessee is an at-fault state when it comes to auto accidents, auto insurance and compensation for injuries and property damage. For this reason, a successful claim or lawsuit may require an injured person to demonstrate that another motorist was at fault and caused a crash.
If you choose The Kennedy Law Firm, PLLC, as your source of advocacy after a motor vehicle accident with injuries, we will examine the facts in detail. We may discover that another driver’s cellphone use or other distractions caused the wreck. This evidence can make a great difference in the amount of compensation you can recover.
Trends Among Tennessee’s Distracted Drivers
Based on multiple measures, the Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security has reported that approximately one out of every 15 drivers involved in crashes is distracted. According to the agency, statistics have also shown that distracted drivers in the state:
- Are involved in accidents approximately every 23 minutes
- Incur costs of approximately $491 million per year through car accidents
- Are most prevalent among the 20- to 34-year-old age group
- Cause crashes more often in urban than in rural areas
- Are more often male
Regardless of who the driver was, if we represent you after a car accident, we will always look for evidence of causes and their fault, including distracted driving. For example, we may subpoena cellphone records to prove that the driver was sending or receiving calls and/or text messages at the time of the crash.
