Alberta Car Accident Lawyer Investigates Distracted Driving Claims

Video Transcript:

Rob Rosenthal: 

What should you do if you think the other driver was texting when they crashed into your car? Let's ask Calgary lawyer Steve Grover for an Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.

Steve Grover: 

Reach out to a law firm like ourselves, we specialize in accident injuries. We send out a letter right away for the other side to preserve their evidence. Unfortunately, the iPhone or Samsung Galaxy is a remote control of this generation, it's just everyone has one. And unfortunately, people still text and drive, they still talk and drive. Unfortunately, it's something that I don't think there's a lot of information going out there to not, and I recommend people don't text and drive, but unfortunately a lot of people do, but our office, if you retain us, we'll go out, we'll contact the other insurance company. We'll say, "Listen, have your driver owner preserve the text messages." If you don't, we can argue that there's spoliation of evidence at trial. That there's something that maybe was there that should... They don't want to have exposed on their case, and it's always about preserving evidence. I think that's the key.
