Know Your Rights If You Are Injured By A Driver Who Was Texting
It is illegal in Texas to use a wireless communications device for electronic messaging while operating a motor vehicle. Texting or using email is prohibited statewide. These laws are a reflection of the rise in accidents caused by drivers who are texting or otherwise distracted behind the wheel. It has surpassed drunk driving as the leading cause of wrecks on our roads and highways across the nation.
If you were injured or lost a loved one in a West Central Texas automobile accident caused by a driver who was cited for texting or other distracted driving, you may have the right to seek punitive damages in addition to compensation for medical treatment, lost earnings, and pain and suffering related to your injuries. Before you speak with the insurance company about a settlement, learn about your rights. Schedule a case evaluation at Allen Law Firm in Abilene.
