Distracted Driving Comes In Many Forms
Texting while driving is one of the leading causes of distracted driving and serious motor vehicle crashes in the United States. In fact, a study conducted by the Texas A&M University's Transportation Institute showed that reaction time of a person texting and driving can be up to two times slower than if they were focused on the road.
Texting while driving is not the only dangerous activity drivers engage in with their phones. Many drivers are also guilty of:
- Checking their email
- Surfing the web
- Receiving updates for sports scores
- Playing games
- Taking photos or video of passengers
As your texting while driving accident attorneys, we will aggressively pursue your claim and work hard to obtain a quick and acceptable settlement. We will thoroughly prepare your case for a trial if we cannot negotiate an adequate settlement that properly values your claim.
Our attorneys will also provide professional, compassionate representation if someone else caused the wrongful death of a loved one in an auto crash.
