How Will Nebraska’s Distracted Driving Laws Impact My Claim?

When you’re hurt in a Hastings car accident, knowing exactly what happened during your accident can help you get compensated fairly for your injuries and the hardships you faced because of your accident. For example, if you or the other driver was distracted behind the wheel, it can impact the compensation you receive for your claim. 

At Conway, Pauley & Johnson P.C., we know distracted driving can be a big part of your claim, and if you’re accused of texting and driving, it can hurt the compensation you’re due because of your accident. Here’s what you need to know before your claim goes to court. 

Nebraska’s Distracted Driving Laws 

Your car accident may have been caused by a distracted driver. Maybe they were texting, eating, or adjusting the radio. When it comes to your claim, you need to know to correctly file. 

Distracted driving is banned in Nebraska, as well as many other states. If you’re caught texting and driving, for example, you may be fined hundreds of dollars if you’re found guilty of driving distracted. 

That will also impact your Nebraska car accident lawsuit. For example, the other driver may have been speeding and driving distracted when they caused your car accident. Because they acted so dangerously careless, you have suffered serious injuries. 

That may be reflected in the lawsuit. They may face traffic court for breaking the law, which may strengthen your civil claim. This evidence can be key in proving fault and protecting your compensation. 

What if I’m Partly at Fault? 

Unfortunately, you may have been accused of driving distracted yourself. They may claim you glanced down at your phone, and while you may not have caused the accident, they may claim you were too distracted to stop it. 

If you accept partial blame for the car accident, you may lose part or all the compensation you were due. Because of this, it’s important to speak with your lawyer about gathering evidence and avoiding any claims of partial fault, when possible. 

Seek Out a Car Accident Lawyer to Protect Your Claim 

When you’re hurt by another driver’s mistakes, you don’t want to lose part or all of what could have been included in your car accident settlement because they accused you of the same mistake. You need these funds to help you overcome the injuries and damages you’ve suffered because of the accident.
