Distracted Driving Accidents

Kansas City Distracted Driving Accident Attorneys

Injured by a Distracted Driver in Missouri? DiPasquale Moore Will Fight for You!

Time and again, distracted driving has proven to be not only dangerous but deadly, yet motorists in Kansas City and throughout the state continue to engage in it. If you have been injured in an accident with a distracted driver, our qualified legal staff at DiPasquale Moore will help you pursue your full compensation for your injuries.

Per state law, auto accident victims are entitled to be compensated for any losses suffered as a result of the accident in which they were injured. Typically, this includes financial losses (economic damages) in addition to emotional/psychological losses (non-economic damages), such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress. At DiPasquale Moore, we will fight to recover any and all damages related to your case, as we have done myriad times in the past for our clients.

Our attorney team routinely recovers compensation for our clients in the form of seven-figure verdicts and settlements, such as:

  • $1.4 million recovered for a client who suffered broken bones and internal injuries in a traffic collision;
  • $1.325 million recovered for a client who was catastrophically injured in a head-on collision; and
  • $1.125 million recovered for a client who suffered serious internal injuries in a T-bone accident.

Please note: No firm’s past results can guarantee a similar outcome for your case, but past case results are evidence of the skill and capabilities of the legal team behind them. When you work with DiPasquale Moore, our team will litigate your case with the same client-centered, results-driven approach that has proven effective over the years.

Distracted Driving Laws in Missouri

Most forms of distracted driving are not prohibited by state law. In Missouri, distracted driving legislation is primarily concerned with younger motorists and texting while driving — per RSMo § 304.820, texting and driving is illegal for any motorist age 21 and younger.

However, a distracted driver can still be held accountable for any resulting accidents and injuries even if they were not in direct violation of the state’s distracted driving laws. This is because all motorists on the road have a legal responsibility to conduct themselves and their vehicles with care; in legalese, this is referred to as the “standard of care.” When motorists choose to drive while distracted, they are violating this standard of care by acting negligently. You can, therefore, still hold them accountable for your injuries.

A few examples of distracted driving for which a motorist may be considered negligent (and liable) include:

  • Texting, messaging, calling
  • Using social media
  • Eating food
  • Drinking coffee, soda, etc.
  • Tweaking climate controls
  • Tuning the radio
  • Personal grooming
  • Feeling drowsy/mentally preoccupied

Since a motorist will be considered distracted if they engage in any activity/task besides driving, there are many other types of distracted driving besides those listed here. These are simply the most common.
