You may have noticed the public service messages warning us about the dangers of texting while driving sound very similar to those about drunk driving. There is good reason for that comparison. According to recent studies, drivers who use a cell phone while driving can experience delayed reactions similar to those who have a blood alcohol concentration of .08, the legal limit in many states.
When a driver's reaction time is impaired, the likelihood for an accident resulting in serious injury increases. If you were injured by a driver who was texting-while-driving or talking on their cell phone, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
The lawyers at the Rosen Law Firm provide personal service and compassionate representation for families and individuals dealing with the consequences of serious injury from auto accidents, including those where texting is a factor in the crash. Our Charleston texting-while-driving accident lawyers are honored to help our clients move beyond the devastation and recover fair compensation for their losses.
The United States Department of Transportation says that distracted driving is any nondriving activity a person engages in that has the potential to distract him or her from the primary task of driving and increase the risk of crashing. There are three main types of distractions:
Nearly all types of driving distractions have the potential to endanger people on the road, but sending text messages is one of the most dangerous activities because doing so involves all three types of distractions.
If you or a family member is suffering from serious injuries related to an accident where texting while driving was involved, you may be entitled to compensation to help you with medical expenses and other expenses.
