Distracted Driving Accidents

With the growth of smartphone use has come a surge in distraction-related accidents on our roads and highways. The most recent data presented by the NHTSA is shocking — an estimated 28,000 people were injured in 2012 in crashes involving cellphones.* More and more people are not paying attention to the road and instead are engulfed in texts, emails and other cellphone-related activities while driving.

If you or someone close to you has been injured in an accident due to a distracted driver, you deserve accountability and compensation. We are prepared to put our aggressive advocacy and comprehensive personal injury knowledge to work for you.

We at Grimes & Fertitta, P.C., have more than 35 years of combined experience obtaining millions for clients in auto accident cases. Our lawyers in The Woodlands and Houston, Texas, are prepared to bring our approach to work on cases involving:

  • Texting while driving
  • Using a cellphone or smartphone
  • Eating and drinking
  • Talking to passengers
  • Grooming
  • Reading, including maps
  • Using a navigation system

From the moment you get in touch, we will begin building the strongest possible case for court, reaching out to accident reconstruction specialists and subpoenaing any relevant cellphone data logs. We will do everything we can to settle for the damages that you deserve out of court. That said, we are prepared to litigate in pursuit of your well-being.
