Texting -- A Deadly Distraction

According to statistics published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 3,300 people were killed in accidents involving distracted drivers in 2012. While the use of a cellphone in general can be distracting, texting is commonly seen as one of the most distracting actions. If you or a loved one was injured in an accident caused by a driver who was texting, schedule a free consultation with an attorney as soon as possible.

When drivers are distracted — even for an instant — serious accidents can result. Distractions can come in many forms, from eating to using a cellphone, and everything in between. Reading a text, typing a text or sending a text requires the driver to take his or her hands off the wheel, and eyes and attention off the road. When this happens, the driver fails to recognize traffic patterns, safety signals or even brake lights. Floyd Leopard, LLP, can help you receive the monetary compensation you are owed.
