Texting While Driving Accidents
Let us fight for you after a texting while driving accident
Cell phone use has exploded over the past 10 years. More and more people are talking on their cell phones every day as well as sending or reading text messages. Unfortunately, texting while driving also has become all too common.
An eye-opening study by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute found that texting by truck drivers made the risk of a crash or near crash 23 times as high as non-distracted driving. According to a study by the National Safety Council, 28 percent of all accidents occur when drivers talk on cell phones or send or receive text messages. Some research finds texting is as risky as driving while intoxicated (DWI).
