Standing Up For Those Injured In Texting While Driving Accidents
The number of drivers who use their cellphones while driving has increased drastically. Many people are attempting to multitask, using their time behind the wheel to catch up on life. However, the use of hand-held cellphones and mobile devices is illegal for motorists while driving a vehicle. Unfortunately, drivers still talk and text while driving, leaving less than 100 percent of their attention on the road. When drivers are not paying attention, they are more likely to cause very serious car accidents and injuries.
At the KMA Law Office in Severna Park, we are a personal injury firm that is dedicated to helping injured drivers and passengers get the compensation they deserve for the losses they have suffered in a distracted driving or texting while driving accident. Our firm is strong in the belief that distracted drivers need to be held responsible for their negligent actions, and should pay for what they have done.
Texting While Driving
While talking on a cellphone while driving is extremely distracting, a driver who is texting while driving is frequently taking his or her eyes off the road to look at the message that is being sent. It only takes a second for an accident to occur. Our Maryland injury lawyer, Karen M. Authement, seeks out any and all information regarding your accident, including the possibility that the other driver received a ticket for texting while driving, which can be used to your advantage when pursuing compensation for the losses you have suffered.
In-vehicle distractions are not new. Though the number of distracted driving accidents has increased with the proliferation of the cellphone, there have always been situations that result in inattentive driving, such as:
- Eating in the car
- Reading behind the wheel
- Putting on makeup while driving
- Loud children or teenagers in the car
