Dire Consequences of Texting & Driving Accidents
According to several studies, it is believed that texting while driving
is just as dangerous, if not more so, as
drunk driving. This could be true because texting on a cell phone while behind the wheel
distracts the driver in three distinct ways: manual, visual, and cognitive.
A texting individual’s hands will be off the steering wheel, their
eyes will be away from the road, and their mind will be on something else.
By distracting themselves for just a few seconds, drivers who are texting
can lead to car accidents that cause
serious injuries, such as:
- Spinal cord damage (paralysis)
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Internal organ damage
- Severe lacerations
As the CDC’s statistics show, auto collisions involving texting drivers
frequently lead to fatalities. If one of your loved ones has suffered a
wrongful death due to a distracted driver, you may be able to pursue compensation for
your emotional trauma as well as win damages equivalent to their projected
earning potential for years to come.
