Cell Phone Car Accidents


When another driver takes his eyes off the road to send a quick text or to make a quick call, your life can change completely in a matter of seconds. The injury lawyers at Hotz and Associates take all injury and fatal accident cases seriously, however, these distracted driver car wreck cases are especially important and we take them very seriously. We aren’t just advocates for all of our clients, we are advocates for safety on the roads of East Tennessee.

Should you take Legal Action?

Using a cell phone while driving is illegal in Tennessee and is a form of negligence. If another driver using their cell phone while driving causes you a serious injury, you may pursue legal action. To make sure that your medical expenses don’t put your financial well being at risk, you may seek financial compensation from the other party by filing a lawsuit against that driver.

Each car crash and injury case is unique. You should definitely speak to a lawyer who can inform you of ALL of your legal options and rights, no matter how simple or complicated your case seems.

The decision to take legal action can be overwhelming due to the complicated nature of the legal process. With the representation of an experienced and aggressive lawyer, you can rest assured that YOUR rights will be fought for. A successful personal injury case not only helps an accident survivor with financial needs but can also bring healing through closure once the other party is held accountable.

Types of Damages Available

The types of economic and non-economic damages that may be available to a personal injury victim significantly rely on the details of the accident and the extent of the injuries suffered. Cell phone car accidents as we all know can cause catastrophic injuries that can take years to recover from. Some survivors might spend the rest of their life with a permanent disability. Depending on the severity of the car wreck, a cell phone car accident may result in a person suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury, burn injury, or any number of other injuries.

Far too many people who suffer severe injuries in car accidents feel as though their lives have been stolen away from them. It takes time to recover from a car wreck and the legal team at Hotz and Associates will always strive to make the process as stress-free as possible for our clients. With our many years of experience building solid cases to hold negligent parties liable, we provide our clients with a wide range of resources and skills to carry out efficient strategies.
