Houston Texting and Trucking
According to a 2011 report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were 3,092 fatalities caused by distracted driving in 2010.
If you or a loved one have been harmed due to a serious semi-truck, 18-wheeler or big rig accident, it is imperative to seek attorneys with a firm knowledge of the complex and highly-nuanced rules, regulations and standards of the trucking industry.
The use of a mobile telephone may reduce a driver’s situational awareness, decision-making, or performance; and it may result in a crash, near crash, unintended lane departure by the driver, or other unsafe driving action. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a distracted driver, there are steps you can take to hold the individual accountable for the injuries and damages you have sustained.
If you believe that a trucker who was texting and driving has hurt you, Carabin & Shaw, can help. Our lawyers will carefully analyze the accident; we will also seek to obtain the responsible party’s cell phone records to demonstrate texting use at the time of the collision.
Texting while driving takes the attention away from the road and creates the risky potential of a severe accident and serious injuries.
