Accident Caused By Texting Driver
We live in a technological age with a constant urge to stay connected. With the prevalence of smart phones and mobile technology our fast paced business and social interactions have become integrated into almost every aspect and every moment of our lives. However, as new technology related driving laws are meant to demonstrate, it is extremely dangerous and irresponsible to use hands-on technology while behind the wheel of a moving vehicle, and yet, accidents caused by a texting driver are some of the most common types of accidents on our highways today. If you or a loved one has been injured by a distracted driver who was texting and driving, call Carabin Shaw, and we will fight for your rights. Carabin Shaw is proud of our attorneys' long-time service to our greater, central Texas community. As it stands, over forty cities in Texas — including San Antonio, Austin, El Paso and Corpus Christi — have outright bans on texting while driving.
Being inside an automobile can often give people a false sense of security, allowing them to play music and shut out the sights and sounds of the surrounding world. While a lack of respect for driving can be dangerous enough in accidents involving two full sized automobiles, accidents caused by a texting driver can be even more life threatening when they involve a motorcyclist. Motorcycle accidents have much higher rates of injury and fatality than those involving two parties operating larger vehicles. So if you or someone you know has fallen victim to a negligent driver, then you should contact Carabin Shaw as soon as possible. At Carabin Shaw, our attorneys have a wealth of experience when it comes to dealing with the local, San Antonio driving laws, so we can make sure you receive proper compensation for your auto accident.
While car companies and engineers are working tirelessly to increase safety features on modern cars, the National Safety Council (NSC) analysis of National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data finds that 3,142 people died in distraction-affected crashes in 2020. Nearly 390,000 injuries occur each year from accidents caused by texting while driving. At any given moment in the United States, about 660,000 drivers are using cell phones or smart phones while driving. This can be very dangerous to you and/or your family. Accidents caused by a texting driver are astoundingly common, so it's important to be prepared and to hold negligent drivers legally accountable for their actions.
