Texting While Driving Accident

After a texting while driving accident occurs, you are left with many questions. How will I pay for my medical care? Will I be able to afford to repair my car? Is there any way to hold the person who decided to text while driving accountable for his or her actions?

Without the guidance of a seasoned injury attorney, you may not get the answers you need. Worse, without an advocate on your side you may face an insurance company that only looks out for its bottom line by denying payment or attempting to minimize the effect that serious injuries have in your life.

Facts About Texting While Driving

Research of texting while driving has yielded findings such as:

  • The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute found, in a study commissioned by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, that those who send or receive texts take their eyes off the road for approximately 4.6 seconds at a time.
  • This is a higher amount of time, per task, than dialing a cellphone, looking at a map, or even reading a book while at the wheel.
  • During those 4.6 seconds, a car moving at 55 miles per hour would travel more than 370 feet — which is equal to or more than an entire block found in most cities — all while the driver was not looking at the road.

We use an in-depth understanding of these facts and other related scientific studies to build powerful cases on behalf of those who have suffered injuries due to the negligence of those who choose to text and drive.
