Texting Accidents in Jacksonville, FL

Legal Guidance from Our Jacksonville Car Accident Lawyer

In Florida, texting while driving is against the law. Part of the reason for the enactment of this law is the number of car accidents caused by drivers who have been texting. Texting while driving is a form of distracted driving that results in more than 3,000 fatal accidents annually. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident caused by a texting distraction, we can help you pursue monetary compensation. Our Jacksonville personal injury attorney can help by proving negligence on the part of the other party who was found to be texting. Rather than handling this case on your own, we can help you prove liability and pursue the maximum recovery you deserve.

Dangers of Texting While Driving

Many dangers are involved when an individual is texting while driving. Visual and cognitive distractions occur to the driver who is sending or receiving a text message. On average, for an individual to send just one text, the driver must take his or her eyes off the road for 4.6 seconds. This visual distraction can quickly result in a catastrophic traffic collision. Texting is also a form of cognitive distraction, which means that the driver's mind is not focused on the task at hand, in this case, driving. Such distraction and lack of attention significantly increases the chance of causing an accident or being unable to avoid an accident.
