The Dangers Of Texting And Driving
Texting, emailing and using social media while driving are all types of distracted driving. People who drive while distracted can be as dangerous as people who drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. One or both of their hands may be off the steering wheel and their eyes and minds are not on the road.
Distracted driving accidents can cause catastrophic injuries such as brain injuries, burns, back injuries, fractures, amputations and spinal cord injuries. Accident victims may be left with temporary or permanent disability. In the worst cases, wrongful death may be the result.
Catastrophic injuries require extensive medical care that may include surgeries, pain management, rehabilitative or occupational therapy, prostheses, cosmetic procedures and long-term care. Injury victims and their families will need significant compensation to cover medical bills, lost wages and additional expenses. We will aggressively pursue the maximum amount of compensation you are allowed.
