  • In the aftermath of a wreck, proving that a driver was distracted and thereby caused the crash isn’t as easy as it sounds. You might not have the tools and experience you need, and worse, you might struggle to manage building a claim while recovering from your injuries.

    Unfortunately, proving that the at-fault driver was distracted is crucial to obtaining the compensation you deserve for your injuries and damages. If you don’t, your compensation could be reduced or even dismissed entirely, which leaves you picking up the bill for your accident-related expenses. Continue reading to learn more about proving a distracted driver caused your accident.

    Using Expert Witness Testimony

    An expert witness might be able to provide the proof you need, based on evidence and information from the scene.

    For example, the other driver might have been messing with their GPS device at the time of the accident, which caused them to drift into your lane and collide with your vehicle. An expert witness can pull information logs from the GPS to prove the driver was distracted at the time of the wreck.

    Evidence for Your Claim

    In some cases, you might be able to secure invaluable evidence immediately after a car accident. Although your health and safety should come first, taking pictures of the accident can help, especially if there are signs of distracted driving in the other vehicle. The following are a few signs of distracted driving:

    • Open food containers

    • Spilled drinks on the other driver

    • A cell phone in the seat

    • Open makeup or grooming bags

    • Any footage captured by witnesses
