Every day drivers focus on their cell phones and not the road, including driving while texting or emailing. In 2011, 23% of accidents involved a cell phone, which equates to 1.3 million preventable accidents. Texting while driving has surpassed drunk driving as the leading cause of accidents for teens. Even with legislation prohibiting texting and driving, it is an epidemic on the roads. According to Texting and Driving Safety.com, when someone texts their attention is diverted from the road for at least 5 seconds. At 55 mph, they travel 100 yards, and that is a lot of distance covered without full attention on the road.
When the other driver in a car accident was driving while texting, using a cell phone or failing to pay full time attention, you’ll need legal help to prove your case. Get a former insurance attorney fighting for you as soon as possible. Contact The Paullin Law Firm today 804-464-3765.
