Have you been injured in Texas because of a distracted driver?

When you are a driver on the road, it is likely that you do everything that you can to keep yourself and others safe. Unfortunately, however, there is only so much that you can do, because the safety of all drivers and passengers on the road depends on all of the actions of drivers on the road.

If you have been injured significantly in a car accident, it is likely that you will feel anger and frustration toward drivers who do not take safety seriously. In the case of your accident, you will want to know the consequences that the other driver will face for causing so much suffering, if you believe it was his or her fault.

One of the most common causes of accidents in Texas and in the United States is distracted driving. Distracted driving is the act of engaging in any activity that takes the driver's full attention off the road. It is becoming an increasingly common and concerning activity as smartphones become an important factor in everyone's lives.

In the state of Texas, a law was passed in 2017, creating a ban on any type of phone use while driving. This includes reading, texting, making phone calls and taking pictures. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, one in every five crashes is primarily caused by distracted driving.

As a victim of a car crash where the other driver was using one's phone or engaging in distracted driving, it is important that you stand up for your rights. If the driver was acting recklessly, those actions created danger for him- or herself and for everyone on the road. It is important that you are able to make a claim for damages so that you can move on with your life.
