Nashville Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer The Help You Need When You Need It Most

Nashville Distracted Driving Accident Attorney

Hurt in a Texting While Driving Accident?

Proverbs tells us that as long as our eyes look directly forward and we keep our gaze straight before us, then all our ways will be sure. Attorney Stanley A. Davis knows many motorists across Tennessee try to follow that advice but can be injured in car accidents caused by a driver who was texting or talking on a cellphone. He can subpoena a negligent driver’s phone records as part of a thorough accident investigation and fight to get compensation for injured clients in personal injury claims.

There are three types of distractions while driving:

  • Visual distraction: Something that takes the driver’s eyes off the road
  • Manual distraction: Something that takes the driver’s hands off the wheel
  • Cognitive distraction: Something that takes the driver’s mind off the primary task

Texting is one of the most dangerous forms of distraction, because it involves all three types of distraction. Other forms of distraction that can endanger other motorists include:

  • Adjusting a car stereo
  • Eating or drinking
  • Grooming
  • Reading maps
  • Talking to other passengers
  • Using navigation systems
  • Watching a video

Injuries in Distracted Driving Accidents

Attorney Stanley A. Davis stands up for the victims of distracted driving accidents. He works tirelessly to help individuals who have sustained serious injuries such as broken bones, severe burns, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or paralysis receive the compensation they need to recover and move on with their lives. Our lawyer can also file wrongful death claims on behalf of families who have lost loved ones in fatal car accidents caused by motorists who were texting while driving.

Is Texting While Driving Illegal in Nashville?

Tennessee law makes it illegal for drivers to send text messages while behind the wheel. Texting while driving is arguably one of the worst driving errors and most common driving distractions. While laws to prevent cell phone use while driving do exist, some drivers do not always follow these laws.

Car accident statistics from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) show that more than 15 people die and more than 1,200 people suffer injuries every day in car accidents that involve a distracted driver. Teenagers are the age group responsible for texting while driving the most. Teenagers can be dangerous drivers because, along with a higher likelihood of texting while driving, they are also less experienced as drivers.

We treat every client with the utmost compassion and offer a free consultation to discuss the details of your case. If you or a loved one has sustained injuries in a texting and driving accident, contact us today.
