An analysis of National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data was conducted by National Safety Council (NSC).
How can you prove the at-fault driver was texting and driving?
It’s against state law to text and drive. There are several ways in which an experienced San Jose car accident attorney can show that the other driver was texting:
- Refer to the police report: The driver who caused the crash may have admitted texting and driving to the investigating officer.
- Subpoena the other driver’s cell phone records: These records provide data on what times text messages, emails, or phone calls were made or sent.
- Interview witnesses: An eyewitness to the crash may have seen the other driver texting at the time the collision occurred.
- Check camera footage: Dashcam or surveillance camera footage may provide incontrovertible proof that the at-fault driver was texting.
