Beeville Texting and Trucking
Texting while driving is one of the leading causes of vehicle accidents in Texas, including in the Beeville area. According to the National Traffic and Safety Administration there were nearly four fatalities in 2011 as a result of distracted driving and those numbers have continued to increase. Distracted driving is described as partaking in any activity that takes a driver’s attention away from the road. Some of the most common distractions include:
- Taking a call
Distracted driving endangers the lives of the driver, their passengers, and even innocent bystanders. If you have been involved in a truck accident and believe that the driver was distracted, contact the attorneys at Carabin & Shaw in Beeville today.
Being involved in any of the aforementioned types of Beeville 18 wheeler accidents can be devastating, especially when the accident could have been prevented. Our Beeville texting while driving lawyer handles cases where preventative measures or their lack can be shown to have influenced the accident, which can lead to an increase in compensation for you and your family. Beeville texting and trucking cases can leave people feeling as though they have suffered damages or losses so great that the best course of action is to hunker down and react to the situation with fists clenched. The attorneys at Carabin & Shaw are here to help you out of that fight or flight reaction and relieve you of those stresses so you can focus on healing.
In Beeville, texting and trucking can lead to serious bodily injury and in some cases it can cause an untimely death. As a result, Texas has passed legislation that directly bans handheld devices and texting while driving on all of our roadways. Unfortunately, some Beeville drivers do not always adhere to the law. This is because most drivers still view their actions inside their vehicle as solely their responsibility.
At Carabin & Shaw, our lawyers are arguing cases every day that show how even momentary negligence can lead to a lifetime of suffering for other drivers, passengers and bystanders. For instance, just because no one else seems to be on the road in Beeville is not a valid excuse for distraction, as it can result in driving off the road and into someone’s home or business.
Texting while trucking cases often involve more than just the truck driver. In cases where another car is hit, the point of impact, time of day, contents of both vehicles, how many people were affected, orientation of both vehicles, and the speed limit are all factors our lawyers take into consideration before building a legal defense strategy. If buildings or other property in Beeville was damaged, in conjunction with a multiple-car accident or not, we analyze the damage done to the structure, the age of the building, actual and potential harm to occupants, and of course damage sustained by whatever was in the home or building at the time of the accident.
If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident as a result of Beeville texting and trucking, you may be entitled to compensation. The experienced attorneys at Carabin & Shaw can help you bring the responsible parties to justice. A truck driver who was texting while driving, which led to injuring you or a family member, deserves to be held accountable for their negligence.
