The Distracted Driving Injury Lawyers at Carabin Shaw understand full well the horrible dangers that drunk driving, driving while sending or reading text messages or while otherwise distracted, pose to people while they are on the highway.

In today’s Texas, many vehicle operators seem to blatantly or carelessly disregard all reasonable rules of the road each and every day often causing death or injury to others who randomly cross their path. In point of fact, in Texas about 40% of our deaths in traffic, one of the sadly highest rates in our country, were caused by intoxicated drivers in 2011. Equally disturbing is that, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, someone who is texting while they drive a vehicle is at least six times more dangerous than someone driving while intoxicated. This federal agency learned that receiving or sending a text takes the driver’s eyes off of the road for an average time of 4.6 seconds. This is the equivalent — when driving at 55 mph — of driving entire length of a football field while wearing a blindfold.

Texting While Operating a Vehicle Accidents are on the Rise

It is true that media coverage of the dangers of driving when texting or while intoxicated has gone up greatly over recent years. Sadly, many people still ignore these serious dangers every day at the unfortunate expense of other people’s safely. Such people may well say that it is common to see a driver on a cell phone talking or texting, or that it is not uncommon to see a driver using a DVD player or a computer. They are still talking about seeing distracted drivers. Distracted driving or texting while driving have become all too common. These actions are still not defensible after an accident happens due to them.

While driving while texting and drunk driving are two sadly common causes of serious auto accidents, there are multiple other all too common behaviors that are classified as indefensible reckless driving. Speeding, failure to obey traffic signs and signals and driving when fatigued, are simply a few. The dangers of excessive speed for the current weather or road conditions also are frequently overlooked.

Whether a driver is driving when distracted or is blatantly disregarding the traffic laws, the results are the same far too often— the injury or the death of innocent people. These victims need to know that they have a legal right to compensation and damages if a negligent, aggressive or reckless driver has harmed them.
