Warrensburg Distracted Driver Attorney Services
As any college town can tell you, texting while driving has become a big problem in and around college campuses during the last decade. That’s as true for Warrensburg, Missouri as it is any other higher-education hotspot.
Of course, Warrensburg isn’t just a college town, and texting while driving isn’t just a young person’s problem. In fact, we’ve seen an explosion in distracted driving across all age groups in recent years, resulting in hundreds of serious auto accidents in Missouri every year, many of them deadly.
The threat of distracted driving is very real, and it applies to everyone living in the Warrensburg community and beyond. The injuries in these accidents are often quite serious, and even more moderate collisions can produce surprisingly costly damages.
Missouri auto accident law entitles distracted driving victims to financial compensation for the pain, suffering, and losses they experience as a result of the other driver’s negligence.
Damages frequently awarded to distracted driving victims include:
- Medical bills
- Hospital costs
- Vehicle repair costs
- Pain, suffering, discomfort
- Loss of health
- Loss of mobility
- Lost income (past and/or future)
- Loss of quality of life
To be clear, there is no justification for distracted driving. It is a choice, and an irresponsible one at that.
Careless as they are, though, most distracted drivers are nonetheless represented by auto insurance companies. These insurers step in to handle the accident claims, and they are notorious for doing everything they can to reduce settlements.
Distracted driving victims deserve an attorney with a track record of success in distracted driving awards and settlements.

The Many Kinds of Distracted Driving
In the iPhone era, texting while driving accounts for the overwhelming majority of distracted driving cases. In fact, the recent eruption of texting and driving cases has triggered even greater resistance on the part of the insurance companies. Because they now have so many texting cases on their ledgers, they are newly determined to deprive victims of the compensation they’re truly owed.
But in all the focus on texting and driving, it is important to remember that there are many other kinds of distracted driving too, and any of them can impact the Warrensburg community.
Common examples of distracted driving include:
- Texting and driving
- Any other use of a cell phone or smartphone
- Eating while driving
- Applying makeup or cosmetics
- Grooming / looking at the mirror instead of the road
- Allowing one’s mind to stray from the task at hand
- Adjusting the radio / stereo system
- Searching for items in the passenger areas or storage compartments
- Reading or writing
- Attempting to finish homework assignments on the way to class
- Talking with children or passengers
- Adjusting the car’s internal comfort controls
- Using a GPS system or reading a map
- Horseplay behind the wheel
There are many other kinds of distracted driving. Anything that diverts a driver’s vision or concentration from the road may constitute negligence under Missouri personal injury law. Mr. Horn’s Warrensburg distracted driver attorney services can help with these or any instances of negligent driving.
