Many auto vehicle accidents occur because the at-fault driver is not concentrating on the road. For example, they could be texting or using their phone while operating their car. If you receive injuries during a car crash, proving the at-fault driver was texting while driving might help support your compensation claim. To do this, you will likely need several critical pieces of evidence.
A police report contains the responding law enforcement officers’ assessment of the accident and what likely happened. Because of this, it is often helpful in investigations by insurance providers. If law enforcement finds evidence that the at-fault driver was texting while driving, they will likely issue a ticket and cite this in the police report.
Some eyewitnesses may have seen what the at-fault driver was doing immediately before the accident. Their testimony that the driver was looking down or using their phone might help solidify your case further.
It is possible to obtain the at-fault driver’s phone records from their carrier or service provider. If records show them sending or receiving messages very close to the accident, you might have solid proof that they were on their phone while driving.
Traffic camera footage
Especially in urban areas, traffic cameras might be sophisticated enough to see inside cars. Such cameras may show what the at-fault driver was doing immediately before the accident.
You might need the assistance of an attorney to build a successful case against a negligent driver. Your attorney can help you gather the correct evidence and fight for your right to fair compensation for your injuries.
