Statistics and reports have clearly shown that texting while driving is a common cause of very serious accidents, and many serious or fatal injuries. A close second to drunk driving accidents, texting while driving accidents are reported to be one of the most dangerous types of vehicle-related accidents. When texting, not watching the road ahead, the dangers of causing a car accident are greatly increased. Some of the most common injuries seen in texting while driving accidents include cuts and bruises, broken bones, burn injuries, head and neck injuries, permanent scarring or disfigurement, and in the worst case scenario, a wrongful death.
Have you been seriously injured in a texting while driving accident?
Due to the dangers associated with texting while driving, the state of West Virginia has laws in place which ban texting the use of handheld devices for all drivers. Novice drivers are banned from any cell phone use while driving, regardless of whether it is on a handheld or hands-free device. If you have been seriously injured in a texting while driving accident, you have grounds to file a lawsuit or claim to recover damages. The attorneys at the firm understand how important it is for you to concentrate on your recovery, rather than worrying about the medical expenses and other damages brought about by the negligent driver. When you are represented by the firm, they will work hard to establish liability, and to gather the necessary supporting evidence to prove your claim and recover the compensation you deserve.
