Texting while driving is illegal under the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) §40-6-241. If a negligent driver causes your accident because they were texting behind the wheel, you are entitled to pursue financial compensation from them to cover your damages. You don’t have forever to do so, and it is best to get into contact with an attorney as soon as possible.

Why You Need a Lawyer
If you don’t have a legal background, then we highly recommend you retain one of our lawyers to assist you with your claim and during negotiations. Many car accident victims in Georgia try to fight for their own settlement, and while a few can end up successful in their efforts, there are many more that get swindled out of the compensation they deserve.
Retaining a lawyer is a great way to ensure that you get the maximum amount of compensation possible for your damages. You don’t need to spend hours stressing and self-studying. Instead, focus on healing and recovery while we bear the grunt work for your case.
Best of all, you don’t have to pay us anything if we don’t win compensation for you.

We Will Fight to Compensate All of Your Damages
You can sustain a variety of damages due to a texting driver.
Pain and Suffering
You can feel pain long after a car accident occurs. Many injuries can leave lasting negative impacts on your body that can be a huge burden to live with. Your pain and suffering shouldn’t get discounted from your settlement.
We use various formulas to calculate the value of your pain and suffering. Additionally, we also consider the factors of your case, the severity of your injuries, and how much of a negative impact your pain is causing you. The final amount always varies from case to case.
Vehicle Repairs and Replacement
You can get compensated for any of the repairs you made on your car or for any of the payments you’ve made on your replacement vehicle. It is essential that you keep all of your receipts and invoices. This will make it easier to calculate how much you should receive in your settlement accurately.
The injuries you sustain after a texting driver causes your accident can prevent you from doing your job. You may have to take reduced pay or end up losing your job altogether. You can claim whatever wages you could’ve earned but now can’t in your settlement.
Our texting while driving lawyers will work hard to ensure that every cent gets accounted for.
Building a Strong Case Before You File
Even though texting while driving is illegal and considered a highly negligent act, you still need to build a strong case for your negotiations with the insurance company.
Insurance companies will always try to dispute your claim and try to shift the blame onto your shoulders. To them, it’s irrelevant whether or not the texting driver is in the wrong. They simply don’t want to pay you any compensation.
To counter this, you need to gather as much evidence and information pertaining to your accident and your damages as possible. It can be hard to know where to even start, especially when you’re dealing with your injuries. This is where our attorneys come into play. We can help you:
- Collect and store all of your evidence safely.
- Prove the negligence of the at-fault driver during negotiations.
- Handle all of your communications, paperwork, etc.
- Answer your questions and provide you with excellent legal advice.
