Suing a Distracted Driver for a Florida Car Accident
When another driver is careless, they may not have suffered for it like you did. Maybe they were happily texting away on their phones when they struck you, hitting your side of the car and paralyzing you. Worse, they may try to claim they didn’t cause your devastating car accident.
Suing a distracted driver for a Florida car accident may not be easy, but you do have a chance. Reach out to the lawyers at Anderson & Anderson to get answers.
Who’s Liable for a Distracted Driving Accident?
After a Tampa distracted driver harms you, it can be tough to recover compensation. You may be unsure where to turn for compensation, for example. Typically, the at-fault party is the person who caused the accident. In your case, the at-fault driver may have been texting and driving, and your car accident wouldn’t have happened if they had been more careful.
But your claim isn’t always simple. For example, you may have been struck by a delivery driver. If they injured you while on the clock, their employer may be responsible for their careless actions. They made the choice to hire them, and so they’re responsible for them while they’re at work.
Compensation Due for Distracted Driving Accidents
Unfortunately, many Florida car accident victims have a hard time getting fairly compensated for their losses caused by the accident, also called damages. For example, you may know you’re due compensation for your car. But what about the intangible losses you’ve suffered because of your injuries, like physical pain?
Here’s the good news—your Tampa car accident lawyer has the right tools to get you compensated. Talk to a car accident lawyer if a distracted driver caused any of the following damages for you:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical bills
- Emotional distress
