Inattention Can Be Deadly
A Preventable Tragedy
Montana has not been immune from the nationwide increase in distracted driving accidents that have injured and killed far too many. The inattentiveness and carelessness of these drivers can cause lifelong injury and disability for those unlucky enough to cross their path in the wrong place at the wrong time. And for families who lose a loved one to another’s inability to put down a phone while driving, the heartache is permanent. At Edmiston & Colton Law Firm, we demand justice for those who have been injured in distracted driving accidents.
Evidence Of Distraction
The most obvious example of distracted driving is texting while driving. But there are other ways a driver can take their attention off the road long enough to cause a car accident, including:
- Applying makeup
- Adjusting music
- Eating while driving
- Consulting a GPS
However your crash occurred, it’s important to contact one of our attorneys right away so we can get to work preserving potential evidence from the scene. For example, there is a time limit beyond which we would not be able to subpoena phone records that could prove that the other driver had been on the phone at the time of the crash.
