Can I Sue At&t For Causing Me To Crash My Car?

Postby azaria93 » Fri Sep 29, 2017 4:19 am

On one occasion I was following the navigation instructions and it told me to keep going straight so I did but the road was not straight; it curved and so I hit the guard rail. I had to make an insurance claim, pay $500.00 for the deductible, and get a rental car. Again I was following the Navigator's instructions and it told me to turn right so I did and I would up in the ditch! All this while I was trying to type an important text message and the right turn was several feet ahead...geeez. Annoying. So now I had to file another claim for the rental car. My insurance company is raising my premiums. Can I sue?

Unfortunately, due to 'fine print' type things, you would get nowhere in a lawsuit against them. When you buy the phone and open up the 'Map' app for the first time, it clearly states a warning saying something along the lines of 'Do not use this application while driving a vehicle.' When that's said, that automatically releases AT&T from any and all liability in any incident involving the maps application. On a side note, you shouldn't have been texting and driving either, that's a ticketable offense.

I don't think you can, I mean seriosly you didn't see that there no road in front of you? Are you really that stupid? If you saw there was no road then why did you go straight? That's just plain stupid! And about the second one it was your fault cuz you were texting and driving...WHICH IS ILLEGAL!

You should have used you common sense to realize if you turned right you would end up Ina ditch. ( not being rude).
So I would say no because that is kind of your fault and I don't think it would be worth trying to sue them because they are a big company and they probably wouldn't pay you the full amount.

I think with the explanation you just gave.
any judge in his right mind would laugh you right out of court.
YOu were texting and driving.
when they say straight they mean follow the curvature of the roadway and don't make turns as in turning onto another street.
DUH.
seriously.
It was not AT&t's fault it was yours.


DON'T TEXT AND DRIVE.
YOU WILL KILL YOURSELF OR SOMEONE ELSE.......

No you can't.
It's illegal to text and drive.
You should be paying enough attention to the road to see the curve and not drive into a guard rail.
Perhaps driving slower would help.
In future if you need to text, pull over to the side of the road, put the car in park, write your text, put the phone away, keep driving.
