Of all the hazards on Naples roadways, texting while driving is one of the most dangerous. If you suffered injuries in a collision with a texting driver, you could recover financial compensation for your injuries.
The compensation you recover will depend on multiple factors, including the facts of the case, the severity of your injuries, and your choice of attorney. A Naples car accident lawyer with our firm will put you in the best position to secure the compensation you deserve.
You Could Be Entitled to Monetary Damages After Your Collier County Accident
The primary purpose of an injury lawsuit is recovering financial compensation from the responsible party. The monetary damages that can result from a negotiated settlement or trial verdict could impact your life in a significant way.
While a financial award will not undo the harm you have suffered, it could reduce the stress and strain of recovering from a serious injury. Some of the common forms of monetary compensation include:
- Lost wages
- Past and future medical expenses
- Diminished future earning potential
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Property damage
Our Naples personal injury law firm could work with you to identify the compensation available in your case. With so many different forms of compensation, you might be surprised at the monetary damages you are entitled to recover.
Our Lawyers Could Help You Secure Damages After a Accident Caused By Texting
There are many ways our firm could work to secure fair compensation for your injuries following an accident with a distracted driver. We are client-focused and always go the extra mile when advocating for the injured. Some of the ways we could help in your case include:
Investigating Your Case
A thorough investigation is a critical component in a personal injury case. Our firm is prepared to work tirelessly to investigate every aspect of your case. This process starts with establishing that the other driver was texting at the time of the accident.
Our investigation could also evaluate the compensation you could be entitled to following your accident.
Responsive Legal Care
We know how important your injury case is to you. Our firm believes it is not enough to fight for fair compensation for your injuries. Your lawyer will also want to keep you updated during every step of the way. That is why we are focused on responsive legal care for as long as we are working on your case.
This includes providing you with our direct phone line, answering your questions, responding to your calls, and frequently updating you on the progress of the case.
Resolving Your Case
Our ultimate goal in taking on your injury case is to resolve it with a favorable outcome. There are two ways we could achieve this goal. The first option is by negotiating a settlement on your behalf. The second is to take your case to trial and obtain a verdict against the distracted driver.
Settlements are a common outcome for injury cases involving a distracted driver. Despite being common, insurance companies will work tirelessly to push low, inadequate settlements. Whether it is through a settlement or a trial verdict, our firm will handle your case while you focus on recovering from your injuries.

The Risks of Texting While Driving
Texting while driving is inherently dangerous. There are risks that come with operating a motor vehicle, but many of them can be mitigated by carefully paying attention to changing road conditions. When a driver is texting, their attention is elsewhere.
The consequences of texting while driving are significant. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), 3,142 lives were lost due to distracted driving in 2019 alone. The number of serious injuries involved in these accidents is much greater.
Sending or reading a text message might seem harmless to some. After all, it only takes a few seconds. But looking away from the roadway for even a few seconds could result in a devastating crash. A pedestrian could step in front of a driver or another motorist could merge into the lane while the texting driver isn’t looking.
You Could Recover a Monetary Award After an Texting Driver Injures You
If you were injured in a collision with a texting driver, you could be dealing with severe emotional, financial, and physical hardships. By pursuing a civil lawsuit against the at-fault party, you could recover monetary damages for those hardships. Our team of attorneys is ready to help you pursue those damages.
The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine understands the danger that texting while driving represents. We take our duty of holding these careless drivers accountable seriously, and we will pursue compensation on your behalf.
