Texting and Driving Accidents

It is not just teenagers who are texting while driving. Adults are texting as well as using cell phones, which also distract drivers to some extent. Studies have shown that texting while driving impairs one as much as drinking four beers and driving.

When you are driving, you are not only looking where you are going, you are keeping an eye out for other vehicles that may dart in front, or stop quickly. Looking down to text, or even to dial a phone, can take several seconds during which you may be cruising along at 50 mph.

Negligence

Please drive carefully and watch out for careless drivers. If one of them has injured you or a loved one, they are negligent. Call a San Angelo driving distracted attorney. Legally we owe others a duty of care, and when someone fails to take care and you are injured, he or she is liable.

Our job at Webb Stokes & Sparks is to ensure that you receive medical care and are compensated for those medical bills. You also deserve the maximum compensation we can obtain for you for your lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering if careless driving or reckless driving by another has harmed you.

When you come in for a complimentary consultation about a truck accident or other incident, we will listen to what happened, answer your questions, and describe your options. The sooner you speak with us, the better we can gather evidence, including phone records to show the other party was using a device when they hit you.

If a loved one has suffered wrongful death in a fatal accident we can help. We are a personal injury firm with vast experience and resources. Call our San Angelo office to schedule your free initial consultation about your distracted driving car accident.
