Los Angeles Car Accident Attorney: Driving While Texting

The Dangers of Driving While Texting

Driving while texting is an extremely dangerous activity. Not only is it against the law in Los Angeles and the State of California, but it is a serious driver distraction that has the capability of being deadly. Because people are constantly worried about staying connected through all hours of the day, many of them do not understand the danger or harm in trying to drive and text. Studies show, however, that driving while texting can reduce a person's reaction time to the same extent as if they were driving while intoxicated.

Looking down at your phone, even if just for a moment, to read a text or send a quick answer to a question, can be all it takes to cause a rear-end accident or multi-vehicle accident on a major freeway. Sending a simple smiley face via text message while driving on a city street or side road, could cause a deadly head-on accident or even send you careening into a tree in a single-vehicle accident.

Next to drunk driving accidents, driving while texting accidents are the most likely to result in serious damage, catastrophic injuries, or fatalities. That is why if you or a loved one has been in an accident which you suspect was caused by another person driving while texting, you need to contact a Los Angeles car accident lawyer at the firm immediately. An attorney from the firm will be able to assist you in gathering all pertinent evidence, they will review accident and police incident reports, interview witnesses, challenge any false accusations or attempts to incorrectly determine who is liable for the accident, and advise you of the best course of action to pursue.
