Texting While Driving Causes Car Accidents
Texting while driving makes the driver look away from the road and take his or her mind off of driving, both of which can lead to car accidents. Texting while driving is becoming one of leading causes of car accidents in the United States.
In Texas, lawmakers have made it illegal to use a cellphone while driving in a school zone. Other states have banned cellphone use and texting while driving altogether. Texting while driving can also be the basis of a lawsuit if the distracted driver who caused the accident was found to have been using a cellphone or PDA while driving.
Texting while driving can cause accidents when it causes the driver to:
- Rear end a vehicle that had to stop abruptly on the road
- Not notice a traffic signal
- Run into a pedestrian
A study conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute shows that texting while driving made truck drivers 23 times more likely to get into an accident. The evidence is clear: Texting while driving is unsafe, careless and costs people their lives. Our law firm is dedicated to helping victims of distracted driving and holding the negligent parties accountable.
