Car Accidents Caused by Texting While Driving
Injured by a Texting Driver? We'll Fight for You!
Texting while driving is extremely dangerous, and as of September 1, 2017,
it is also illegal. 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, and if they cause a car accident
in which they injure or kill someone, they can face liability. If you
or a loved one has been seriously injured in an accident that was caused
by a negligent driver, you have the right to seek full compensation for

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.
