Texting While Driving

The Dangers of Texting While Driving

Texting while driving is extremely dangerous, and many Texas communities have passed local ordinances against it. People who choose to send text messages or make phone calls rather than pay attention to the road in front of them present a serious hazard to everyone else on the road. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an accident that was caused by a negligent driver who was texting while driving, you have the right to seek full compensation for your injuries.

At The Stewart Law Firm, we represent clients who have been seriously injured in all types of distracted driving accidents. We understand the types of injuries that can happen in these accidents, and we know what type of care is typically required to facilitate your recovery. Our Austin car accident attorney diligently pursues the medical care and financial support you will need over the short and long term.

Texting While Driving Is More Dangerous Than DUI

Research has shown that sending text messages while driving increases the likelihood of an accident by at least eight times, which is a far greater probability than the risk of an accident caused by a drunk driver. People who send text messages while driving take their eyes off the road for several seconds at a time. When they are not paying attention to the road ahead, crashes frequently happen at full speed, which creates the potential for severe injuries.

When you hire our firm, we conduct a complete investigation into your case to gain the most complete understanding possible about how the car accident occurred and who should be held responsible.

To help us build a stronger case on your behalf, we review:

  • Cellphone records
  • Police reports
  • Consult with accident reconstructionists and other experts
