Driving While Texting or Calling
The Consequences of Distracted Driving
Texting or using a phone while driving is one of the leading causes of motor vehicle accidents today. Although campaigns against texting while driving have been effective to some degree, millions of drivers continue to engage in the dangerous habit of texting while driving. Such behavior is reckless and voluntarily puts the lives of other individuals on the road at risk. When operating a motor vehicle, taking your eyes off the road for a matter of seconds can result in the serious bodily injury or even wrongful death of another individual.
Distracted driving takes the lives of many individuals unnecessarily every year. Those that do survive are often forced to deal with life-altering injuries. Nearly 6,000 individuals die every year due to collisions with distracted drivers. Several studies have shown that texting while driving can actually be more dangerous than
drunk driving. If you or a loved one has been injured by a driver partaking in any actions such as using a PDA, emailing, talking on a cell phone, or texting while driving, you have the right to speak with an injury attorney regarding your compensation.
