Hit By A Texting Driver? Let Us Seek Compensation For You.
Approximately 200 billion text messages are sent in the United States per month. As texting while driving takes the driver’s eyes off of the road for about five seconds, it is no surprise that 43 states have banned the practice. Indeed, using your phone while driving makes it 23 times more likely you will be involved in a car accident.
Holding a texting driver accountable for his or her negligence is only right. While the new Florida texting and driving law makes it illegal for drivers to text and drive, drivers still do it. After all, it is merely a secondary offense, and law enforcement can pull you over only if you’ve committed another offense aside from texting and driving.
