How Can An Accident Attorney Handle the Insurance Company?

Insurance companies are often quick to offer accident victims low settlements. In some cases, the claims adjuster may become aggressive and will attempt to pressure the accident victim into accepting their settlement offer. Negotiating with a claims adjuster can be a long, stressful, and time consuming process. 

At the Ben Dominguez Law Firm, our distracted driving accident lawyers will handle all interactions with the insurance company. We will not allow a claims adjuster to pressure or intimidate a client and we will not back down until the insurance company offers a fair settlement. While we fight for maximum compensation, you can focus on recovering from your injuries and moving on with your life.

"This was my first accident ever and with that it was a 5 car pile up. I was scared and had no idea what to do. I called Ben's office to get me some help when the insurance was trying to say they didn't know who was at fault and I had to pay out of pocket."

What Are Texas Distracted Driving Laws Every Driver Should Know?

Distracted driving laws in Texas can reduce the risks associated with activities that take a driver’s attention from the road. These laws are meant to prevent texting and using handheld devices while driving.

Distracted driving laws include:

Texting ban

Texas has a statewide ban on texting while driving. It is illegal for drivers to send, receive, or read text messages while the vehicle is in motion.

Handheld device ban

While Texas has a texting ban, it does not have a statewide ban on using handheld devices for other purposes. However, some counties in Texas have their own laws prohibiting handheld device use.

School zones and bus stops

 In certain situations, state law imposes stricter restrictions. Using a handheld device is prohibited in active school zones and within 500 feet of a school bus that is receiving or discharging passengers.

New drivers

Texas law imposes stricter restrictions on novice drivers. During the first 12 months of having a learner’s permit or provisional license, drivers under 18 years of age are prohibited from using wireless communication devices, including cell phones, while driving.

How is Texting While
Driving Dangerous?

Texting while driving diverts a driver’s attention from the road, negatively impacting driving performance, resulting in an increased risk of collisions. 

Texting while driving results in:

Delayed Reaction Time

When a driver is texting, their reaction time to potential hazards is delayed. This delayed response can result in a collision in situations that require quick decisions, such as sudden stops or evasive maneuvers.

Impaired Driving Performance

Texting can cause erratic driving behaviors, such as drifting between lanes, inconsistent speeds, and ignoring traffic signals. These driving behaviors can result in a collision.

Risk of Collisions

The combination of visual, manual, and cognitive distractions makes texting while driving a leading cause of auto accidents. A collision can occur when a driver is unable to react quickly to changes in traffic conditions or unexpected obstacles.

Impact on Other Road Users

Driving while texting not only jeopardizes that driver’s safety but also puts others on the road at risk. Pedestrians, cyclists, and occupants of other vehicles can become victims of accidents caused by distracted driving.

Fatal Consequences

Texting while driving has been linked to hundreds of serious and fatal accidents. The combination of distraction and impaired driving performance can result in fatalities.
