Were You Hit By A Driver Who Was Texting?
Distracted driving has always been a danger, but technology has made driving on roads and highways significantly more dangerous. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and United States Department of Transportation have devoted an entire website — distraction.gov — to educating people on the dangers of distracted driving, and specifically texting while driving.
According to one statistic on the site:
In 2011, just over 3,300 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted drive. An additional 387,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver.
If you or someone close to you was injured in a car or motor vehicle accident because of someone’s texting/cellphone use, you may have options; by partnering with an experienced lawyer, you may be able to obtain the compensation you need to fully recover and to bolster accountability on our roads and highways.
