Fighting For Those Who Have Been Hurt in a Texting While Driving Accident in Tennessee

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 cell phone. 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.

Types of Driving Distractions

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

Common Causes of Distracted Driving 

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

Common 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.

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Distracted Driving Accident Claim?

When pursuing a distracted driving accident claim, victims may be eligible to recover various damages, compensating them for the physical, emotional, and financial toll they have endured.

  • Medical Expenses: Victims are entitled to compensation for all medical costs related to the accident, including emergency care, surgeries, hospital stays, medications, and ongoing rehabilitation.
  • Lost Wages and Future Earnings: Victims can pursue compensation for lost wages and potential future earnings if the injuries sustained in a distracted driving accident result in missed work or diminished earning capacity
  • Property Damage: Compensation may cover the restoration or replacement of the damaged vehicle, as well as any personal property affected in the accident.
  • Pain and Suffering: Victims can pursue damages for physical and emotional pain and suffering endured because of the accident. This encompasses both the immediate impact and any lasting consequences.
  • Loss of Consortium: In cases where the distracted driving accident has adversely affected personal relationships, spouses or family members may be eligible to seek compensation for the loss of companionship and support.
  • Punitive Damages: In certain instances, punitive damages could be awarded to punish the at-fault party for egregious conduct, such as willful or reckless distraction while driving.

Is Texting While Driving Illegal in Tennessee?

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.
