Iowa Distracted Driver Accident Lawyers

Des Moines Texting-While-Driving Accident Attorneys

The past few years have brought a new awareness of the risks of technology-related distracted driving in Iowa. In 2010, our state became the 21st to enact legislation that prohibits texting while driving. The law carries an educational period and special enforcement measures covering teen drivers.

Modest penalties for texting while driving are not the key point, however, in this important issue. If you have been hurt or tragically lost a family member because someone was texting behind the wheel, it is important to expose this negligence and pursue compensation critical for your own recovery.

Determined to Establish the Truth About Your Accident

Texting and other forms of distraction — from map reading to searching for items or dealing with children while driving — can be hidden initially as potential causes of serious motor vehicle accidents. We work with experienced investigators and reconstruction experts who know what to look for and how to find and preserve evidence. In addition, we are prepared to pursue:

  • Witness accounts of the accident
  • Cellphone records to show activity, by subpoena if necessary
  • Negotiations and litigation on your behalf showing that texting — or some other type of severe distraction — was a primary or aggravating factor in your crash
  • Recovery for you from any liable source, including all forms of insurance coverage or litigation against a company if you were hit by someone driving for his or her job
