In the time it takes a driver to send or read a text message, a lot can happen. A light can turn red. Traffic can slow. A pedestrian can enter a crosswalk…

The Dangers Of Distracted Driving
Texting while driving is especially dangerous because it takes the driver’s eyes and mind off the road, and his or her hands off the wheel.
Common sense makes the dangers of texting while driving apparent, and research confirms it as fact. A study conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute found that truck drivers were 23 times more likely to cause an accident while texting.
In handling a motor vehicle accident case, our attorneys conduct thorough investigations to determine if texting while driving or other dangerous behavior contributed to the accident. Our investigations often uncover evidence of negligence. This evidence can make all the difference in a personal injury case.
