Did you know that if you are driving 55 mph and you take your eyes off the road for just five seconds to send or read a text, that is the equivalent of driving the length of football field with your eyes closed?
The statistics surrounding driving and cellphone use are staggering. At any given time, approximately 660,000 drivers are using their phones behind the wheel of an automobile. The amount of automobile crashes that involve texting drivers are continually on the rise.
In light of this, insurance companies are scrambling to avoid liability. If you’ve been injured by a texting driver, don’t bow to the insurance company’s desperation. Call a trial attorney who is experienced in suing these drivers and their insurance companies.
You Need An Advocate Who Will Put Your Interests First
If you have been hurt in a texting-while-driving accident and do not think that an insurance company is treating you fairly, stop all communications with them. Instead, pick up the phone to talk to one of our attorneys about your situation. Once you’ve decided to retain our team of experienced trial lawyers, all future communications to the insurance company will be from us.
This is not good news for the insurance company. As a nationally-recognized firm of trial lawyers, most insurance companies know who we are, and they know that our experienced team will fight vigorously for the justice our clients deserve. Our innovative courtroom strategies and assertive negotiation techniques have long allowed us to successfully serve the needs of clients throughout Texas. And, perhaps best of all, you’ll never have to talk to anyone from the insurance company again.
