Dallas Texting and Trucking
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that there were 3,092 fatalities caused by distracted driving in 2011.
Countless studies have reported that the use of a mobile telephone may reduce a driver’s situational awareness, decision-making, and it may result in an accident, or other unsafe driving actions. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a distracted driver, you can take steps to hold the individual accountable for any injuries or damages you have sustained.
Truck drivers are on the road for 12 plus hours at a time and the temptation to multitask or stave off boredom may lead some to use cell phones while on the road. The use of cell phones and other devices can cause a driver to become distracted and may have disastrous consequences. The attorneys at Carabin & Shaw handle truck driver cell phone accidents and will aggressively fight to hold distracted truck drivers accountable for their irresponsible actions.
