Texting While Driving
Pursuing justice for victims of texting while driving accidents
Cell phone driver distractions can be dangerous to everyone on the road. While studies link speaking on a cell phone to accidents, texting while driving appears to be a more significant threat. A Virginia Tech Transportation Institute study found that texting while driving increases the risk of a car accident by 23 times compared to a driver who is not texting. Drivers who are sending and receiving text messages may be more distracted behind the wheel than drunk drivers, according to other studies.
