Colorado Texting Distraction Accident Attorney
Under Colorado law, drivers are responsible for injuries caused in a distracted driving car accident. Common distractions that lead to these accidents include:
- Talking or texting on a cell phone
- Disciplining children
- Eating or drinking while driving
We can subpoena cell phone records. We can order transcripts from traffic court that show admissions by the careless driver.
In one case, Mr. and Mrs. M were knocked off the side of a cliff by a driver, distracted by her dog. The insurance company and the distracted driver claimed it was my clients’ fault. We filed a lawsuit and obtained the traffic court admissions. The insurance company settled for policy limits of $200,000 shortly afterwards.
In another, a client was rear-ended at 40 mph by a woman distracted while talking to her mother and disciplining her children. This woman (and her insurance company) then tried to claim that the medical treatment received was too extensive. We asked where this lady was for the two years of medical care. This careless driver never called or offered to pay for any care. She never even offered medical advice.
Attorney Keith Frankl takes advantage of his extensive network of resources and professionals to assist clients in securing compensation for their serious injuries caused by distracted drivers, whether through a negotiated settlement or at trial. He is a skilled trial attorney — his goal is to paint a detailed, accurate picture of what happened in the accident to combat spurious defenses at trial.
Mr. Frankl uses imagery such as MRIs, X-rays and CAT scans to emphasize the full extent of your injuries to the jury. In this way, the jury can get a better understanding what you have gone through due to someone else’s carelessness. A picture is worth a thousand words. We use special enhancements of medical images that make the mystery disappear.
He will also prove the extent of your injuries and aggressively defend you against your own insurance company when you have been injured in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist.
