Distracted driving contributes to serious and fatal car accidents every year in Utah. At Handy & Handy, we are dedicated to protecting victims and families who have been impacted by a distracted driving car accident.

Our attorneys will advocate for your interests after an accident. We understand how insurance companies view car accident claims involving negligent drivers. Even when you are working with your own insurance company, they may not be looking out for your best interests. We are.

Causes Of Distracted Driving And Proving Negligence

Distracting driving is all too common on the road. Anything that results in a driver become distracted is dangerous. This includes manual, visual and cognitive distractions such as:

  • Texting and driving
  • Talking on a cellphone
  • Reading or writing an email on your cellphone
  • Eating or drinking
  • Talking to passengers
  • Applying makeup
  • Adjusting volume or temperature settings
  • Looking for something in your vehicle
  • Daydreaming

Proving negligence in these types of accidents can be difficult. We will diligently investigate your accident to determine liability, preserve evidence and talk to witnesses to help build a strong case. We may try to obtain cellphone records, police reports, witness accounts and other relevant information to help prove the driver was at fault.
