Distracted Driving Accidents
Were You Hit By A Distracted Driver?
In Iowa, there are laws restricting the use of cellphones and other text messaging devices behind the wheel. Despite this, it is still all too common to see people on their phones while driving, being distracted from focusing on safety. If you or a loved one was injured in an accident where texting was a factor, it is crucial to seek the advice of a skilled personal injury lawyer.
At the law firm of Slater & Norris, P.L.C., in Des Moines, Iowa, our attorneys bring more than 40 years of experience to personal injury law.

Pursuing Full Compensation For Personal Injury Damages
We are committed to helping auto accident victims maximize their claims for damages such as lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical expenses. We thoroughly investigate these accidents and fight to hold distracted drivers accountable for the damage they cause, including catastrophic injuries such as:
- Brain injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones and fractures
Often in these cases, more than just simple negligence is involved. If texting while driving is proven, a distracted driver could be guilty of recklessness or the intentional disregard for the well-being of others. This could open the door to a claim for punitive damages in addition to other damages.
