Despite the risks people take when behind the wheel, no text is too important to send when you are driving. Not only is it illegal, meaning you will get a ticket if you are caught, but it is also an extreme risk to take in regards to both your life and the lives of others on the road. This is why our Mt. Pleasant personal injury attorneys of Lawton Law Firm are more than willing to advocate on your behalf if you have suffered at the hands of a distracted driver.
While someone is texting and driving, they entirely lose focus of what is on the road. Not only is the distracted driver’s mind occupied with responding to a message, his or her vision is compromised as well, as they are likely looking away from the road. Additionally, his or her hands are busy with sending a message. Once a distracted driver has sent one message and gotten away with it unscathed, there’s nothing stopping this person from sending many, many more. As you can imagine, the chances for a devastating, debilitating accident are far more likely when one is texting while behind the wheel--in fact, the chance for fatality is increased, tenfold.
If you or a loved one has been injured at the hands of someone who was distracted behind the wheel, especially with their cell phone, our Mt. Pleasant personal injury attorneys of Lawton Law Firm want to help. We understand you are likely facing a number of costly medical bills, loss of work or wages, or emotional distress. This is why there is no challenge too great to overcome when it comes to delivering you the most successful results possible.
