I consulted with Brooke and found her to be genuine, informative, knowledgeable and a person who would advocate for me. Her demeanor and compassion made it very evident that should I ever need further assistance, she is truly the one I would hire.”
I just want everyone to know that I had Brooke represent me after a big box firm treated me like just another paycheck like I was nothing. I’m glad I made the swap.”
Brooke gave me her cell number and usually returns my call that day or the next if I don’t reach her. Brooke is the type of lawyer I want in my corner!”

    Connecticut Distracted Driving Accident Attorney

    Texting & driving accident lawyer in Connecticut

    Distracted driving is something that has been brought to public attention recently. The most common types of distracted driving happen inside the car. Actions like eating, drinking, smoking, or even reaching across the back seat for an item that fell underneath can all be considered distracted driving and can cause serious and fatal accidents.

    Another major form of distraction on the road is texting and driving. The technological advances made in the world of cell phones have arguably made connecting with friends and family easier but, unfortunately, they have also introduced a whole array of distractions while driving. We must be truthful—texting while driving is a serious issue among teens and adults alike. Texting while driving can cause major auto accidents not to mention lead to significant traffic violation fines if you are caught.

    If you are injured in an accident and you believe the other person was texting or on their phone while driving, contact our team. Our Hartford distracted driving accident attorneys at Goff Law Group can help you seek the settlement you deserve from the driver at fault. The only way to put a stop to texting and driving is by holding the distracted drivers accountable for their negligence, and we can help you do that.

    How to Prove Someone Was Texting & Driving

    In any type of traffic collision in Connecticut, the odds are somewhat high that the at-fault driver was distracted at the time of the collision. Unfortunately, proving distracted driving can be difficult, especially if the at-fault driver denies liability.

    If your accident was caused by a driver texting and driving, you’ll need to prove that in court.

    Our team can help you determine if a person was using their phone by reviewing the following:

    • Make sure to cite the exact time of the accident. Take a screen capture of your phone time/date or take a picture of the clock in your vehicle.
    • Ask witnesses if they saw the person texting or looking down at their phone and ask for their contact information to give to your attorney, insurance adjuster, and the law enforcement on scene.
    • Ask the person if they were texting. Quite often, out of shock, people will be honest about what they are doing.
    • Obtain cell phone records to prove if the driver was texting at the time of the accident.
    • Take photos of the vehicle, outside and inside. You may be able to prove they were on their phone based on the location of the cell phone in the vehicle.
    • Appeal to the jury members or those who are making decisions by discussing how we have all seen a driver, or been a driver, who is looking down at their phone.

    Utilizing these tools, and others honed by our experienced personal injury attorneys in Connecticut, helps us build strong cases for our clients. We will pursue your settlement with your best interest in mind, from start to finish.
