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

Handling cases on a contingency fee basis, we do not charge our clients
legal fees unless we recover compensation on their behalf. This demonstrates

caused by negligence-related accidents. Should you choose to be represented
