Texting can lead to a serious accident

With a growing number of people using mobile devices on a daily basis, it is only natural for the number of texting and driving accidents to increase. Despite the fact that authorities are doing their best to crack down on this, it remains a major problem throughout the country.

Here are some important facts regarding texting while driving:

-- A person sending or receiving a text message takes his or her eyes off the road for an average of 4.6 seconds.

-- During the span of 4.6 seconds, a vehicle traveling at 55 mph would travel approximately 370 feet. All the while, the person behind the wheel is not watching the road or others around them.

Even if you understand the dangers of texting and driving, remember this: Others don't necessarily think this is a bad thing. For this reason, you could be involved in a texting and driving accident even if you're doing everything as you should.

When driving, be sure to pay close attention to other drivers. This means watching for those who may be distracted and then keeping your distance.

If you've been involved in this type of accident, it's time to learn more about your rights. Also, you'll want to answer questions such as "How will I pay for damages to my vehicle and medical care?" and "Is there any way to hold the negligent party responsible?"

At our law firm, we know that texting and driving is a big problem. For this reason, we've helped many people injured in this type of accident to receive the compensation they deserve.
