A: Absent an admission of guilt or eyewitness testimony that the truck driver was texting on a cellphone or other device, proving that a driver was texting immediately before the accident can be difficult. Therefore, proving a truck driver was texting and driving often requires careful investigation.
Successfully proving that a truck driver’s texting caused an accident may require matching up the time of a particular outgoing text or series of texts to the time of the accident. The police report, cell phone records, truck driver logs, etc. must be reviewed carefully. Read more about truck drivers and texting.
Those injured in a texting and driving accident may be able to receive financial compensation for injuries, including:
- medical bills,
- time lost from work,
- pain and suffering, and
- punitive damages.
