Texting while driving is a huge problem. It's distracting and can be considered equivalent to driving while drunk. As a matter of fact, it makes drivers behave like they are drunk. People who text and drive are less able to operate a car than someone who is intoxicated.
Recently, we represented a driver whose vehicle was struck by a young man who was texting his girlfriend prior to the wreck. Our client's vehicle was forced into a former NFL player who was jogging along the side of the road. Unfortunately, the former NFL player lost his leg in the incident.
If you are injured in a car crash as a result of someone who was texting while driving, you can count on the fact that we will sue that driver. We won't wait around for a settlement; we will sue that driver on your behalf right away.
