Texting And Driving
Texting and driving has become an increasingly common problem in our society, as more and more drivers take to their cellphones while behind the wheel. Unfortunately, when a driver looks at his or her cellphone, he or she puts pedestrians, bicyclists and other motorists at grave risk. In many cases, texting and driving accidents lead to serious and even fatal injuries.

Have You Been Injured By A Distracted Driver?
Many people who text and drive do not fully understand the dangers associated with the practice. According to Distraction.gov, texting and driving can be just as dangerous as drinking and driving. It takes approximately five seconds to write and send a text message; at 55 mph, this is the equivalent of driving the length of a football field while wearing a blindfold.
Rear-end collisions and pedestrian accidents often result from this dangerous and irresponsible behavior. Victims generally face significant medical bills, lost wages, disability and emotional distress. As your law firm, we can help you recover damages for these losses.
