Texting While Driving Attorney
When a person is behind the wheel, his or her attention should be focused on the safe operation of the vehicle and nothing else. Still, countless people are injured or killed each year in accidents that are caused by people who allow themselves to be distracted while driving.
One of the most persistent distractions to Rhode Island drivers is the use of cellphones behind the wheel. Despite the ban on texting while driving that was passed in 2009 and the mountains of evidence that prove the dangers of using a cellphone or other hand-held device while operating a vehicle, a large percentage of drivers continue to put themselves and others at risk by doing so.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident that was caused by a driver who was texting or was otherwise distracted by the use of a cellphone, contact me, attorney David Morowitz to discuss your case. I will help you understand your rights and legal options, and I will give you my best recommendation about how to proceed.
Research has shown that people who use cellphones while driving are more likely to cause an accident than people who are legally intoxicated. Looking away from the road and not paying attention to the surrounding traffic or obstacles makes it nearly impossible to stop in time to avoid an accident. In addition, a higher percentage of these accidents tend to happen at full speed because the driver is not looking at the road at the time of the collision.
I have experience representing distracted driving accident victims who have suffered all types of injuries, including the following:
- Broken bones
- Head and brain injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries or paralysis
- Scarring and disfigurement
