Texting-While-Driving Accidents

According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, nearly 87 percent of drivers in a poll consider emailing and texting while driving to be a serious threat while driving. This is almost equivalent to the 90 percent of drivers who considered drunken driving to be a threat while driving.

The general population of Americans today uses mobile devices, even so while they are operating their vehicles. This causes thousands of injuries across our Louisiana roadways each and every year. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has deemed distracted driving as the leading cause of accidents across America today, in which texting and driving is a form of distracted driving.

The attorneys at Simien & Simien, LLC, have great sympathy for those injured due to the negligent actions of a driver texting and believe that the victims may be entitled to compensation for their losses and damages. Our team of car accident lawyers is here to defend you during your time of need and protect your rights so you may focus on healing and moving forward from this unfortunate incident.

Dangers Of Texting While Driving

Statistics provided by the National Traffic Highway Safety Administration demonstrate that almost 5,000 traffic fatalities occur each year in the United States as a result of distracted driving. More so, nearly 400,000 injuries occur as a result of drivers failing to pay attention to the roadway.

As a result, the United States Department of Transportation has demonstrated three types of distracted driving.

They include:

  • Cognitive: A driver is not focused on operating the vehicle, rather their mobile device
  • Manual: A driver takes their hands off the wheel to send and receive texts
  • Visual: The driver takes their eyes of the road to text

Clearly these actions cause an individual to become distracted while driving, which explains the great number of injuries and deaths caused by texting and driving.

Texting While Driving-Related Injuries

As a result of texting while driving, there have been many injuries and deaths. In order to put emphasis on the many dangers associated with texting and driving, our attorneys have gathered some injuries that are related to this behavior.

Following an accident with a driver who was texting, it is imperative to seek medical treatment. This will assure your injuries are cared for while documenting injuries. This documentation is critical in proving that your injuries were caused by the negligent actions of another individual or entity.
