Commentary on Van, Pedestrian Accident on Bertner in Houston

One witness reportedly saw the driver involved "look down" prior to hitting the pedestrian. That usually means someone was looking at their phone. Of course, I wouldn't jump to conclusions without a proper investigation. But that proper investigation isn't always so simple.

For example, I had a situation a while back where a driver's employer tried to say the driver didn't own a cell phone. We sure weren't buying that, but we had to prove otherwise. It took us going through a lengthy deposition to trip up the driver and get him to admit that he did in fact own a phone. With that, we got a court order for the phone records, proving that the driver had been watching pornography at the time of the crash.

I'm not saying anything unusual like that happened here, but it's important folks understand how challenging it can be to look into even the most seemingly simple accidents.
