Texting & Driving Accidents

Texting and Driving Accident Attorneys in Savannah

Representing Injured Georgians Against Distracted Drivers for 30+ Years

Distracted driving leads to about 3,000 accident fatalities in the U.S. every year, according to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The state of Georgia has recognized this problem and passed legislation to combat the leading form of distracted driving: texting and driving. Still, each year, many Savannah residents are injured in accidents caused by texting drivers.

If you have had the misfortune of being injured by a texting driver, you may have grounds to seek compensation for your damages. Tate Law Group will walk you through the legal process with our high-quality legal counsel, and if needed, our litigators will take your case to trial. Since we first opened our doors in 2007, we have recovered more than $100 million for our clients through litigation. Our long track record of success has been made possible through our skill and commitment to our clients: At Tate Law Group, we are driven by our passion for protecting the rights of our neighbors in Chatham County and the surrounding areas.

Georgia Texting and Driving Laws

State law prohibits all forms of hands-on cell phone/device use for drivers of every age group. This includes texting, emailing, instant messaging, browsing the internet, checking social media, watching and recording videos, and any other activities that are not done in hands-free mode while driving.

All Savannah drivers are subject to these distracted driving laws. In addition, every driver is required to act within a certain standard of care when on the road, meaning that they can be held accountable for their negligent driving practices. Therefore, you likely have a strong case for compensation if a texting driver caused you injury.

Several examples of compensatory damages to which you may be legally entitled include:

  • Medical and hospital bills
  • Vehicle damage
  • Lost wages
  • Mental anguish
  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering

The economic and non-economic damages owed to the accident victim will be different for each case. A person’s total amount of compensation will depend on (a) the severity of their injuries, (b) whether they were also acting negligently at the time, and (c) who is most at fault for the accident. Fortunately, state law grants accident victims the right to recover compensation even in cases in which liability is shared. Nevertheless, the other party will most certainly attempt to reduce their share of liability to get away with paying less. At Tate Law Group, we won’t let negligent parties shortchange you.

Backed by over 30 years of combined experience, our texting and driving accident attorneys at Tate Law Group can help you hit the ground running when it comes to your case. We have tough litigators on our team who are prepared to fight for your rights to the fullest extent of the law.

Personal injury law may get a bad rap from the general public, but we know full well how filing suit is often the best way for an accident victim to recover the money they need to afford medical treatment and get back to their life. That’s why our caring Savannah attorneys will make your case our most pressing matter.
