Recoup your costs after a car crash in Iowa

If you've been hurt by someone who was texting while they were driving, then you need to know that the law is on your side. The state of Iowa banned texting while driving in 2010, making it illegal for anyone to be texting on his or her cellphones since then. That hasn't stopped some people, though, even though the practice is dangerous and can lead to crashes resulting in injuries and deaths.

It's not illegal for someone to be on the phone while driving in the state, but sending a text, reading emails or texts, or writing certainly is. Doing any of those things requires a person to take his or her eyes off the road, and that leads to a dangerous combination of factors that can result in accidents.

Sometimes, it can be hard to prove that someone was texting and driving, especially if there is no evidence of him or her doing so. It's important to make sure your voice is heard, and you need to explain that you saw the other driver looking away from the road and being negligent. If the phone can be found, the time stamps may be used to show that the driver was texting at the time of the accident.

With the right help, you can make sure that this driver won't text and drive again in the near future. Hopefully, he or she's learned a lesson and won't drive dangerously again. You deserve to be heard so you can get the money you need to recover and move forward with your life, too. To learn more about what you can do to recoup your costs.
