Texting and Driving

Text messaging on cell phones is a form of communication that has become wildly popular over the past decade. Instead of calling people, individuals can type short messages and have them sent to their friends and family instantaneously.

Though a convenient form of communication, texting can become dangerous when an individual texts and drives. If you or someone you love suffered injuries in an accident with a driver who was texting and driving, contact the Phoenix car accident lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C. at 800-763-0964.

The Dangers of Texting

Unlike making a phone call, texting requires a driver to completely divert his or her eyes and attention from the road and onto a small screen to read a message and respond to it. Doing this may result in:

  • Failure to notice approaching hazards
  • Delayed reaction time
  • Limited coordination due to holding and using the phone

Any of these actions can be deadly while driving, which is why texting and driving has been banned in many states over the past year. Unfortunately, many drivers do still text and drive and put those around them in great danger.

When individuals have been injured by texting drivers, they may be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries.
