Filing Injury Claims When Cellphone Use Is Involved
To prove that an at fault driver was using their cell phone at the time that an accident occurred, you must get the cell phone records of that driver. These records will provide the data you need to prove or disprove the claim that the driver was using their cell phone. But how do you get someone else’s cell phone records? This is where it gets a little complicated. Typically, you’ll first need to file a personal injury lawsuit and then a subpoena in order to secure the at fault driver’s cell phone records.
Not every accident involving a driver using a cell phone is going to require that a personal injury lawsuit be filed. But we do encourage that if you were involved in such an accident, to at least consider consulting with a car accident attorney who can tell you whether you have a legitimate claim and answer any questions you might have. The information and advice that you get from an attorney will help you make a more educated decision about whether or not to file a personal injury lawsuit. Some people worry that just by contacting a lawyer, they are sending a message that they want to file a claim. As lawyers, we know this is not the case and that you need answers and guidance first so that you can make the best decision for you and your family.
