Texting & Driving Accidents
Cell phone use while driving is one of the biggest driver distractions on the road today, especially by younger drivers. Cell phone use is involved in 25 percent of all auto accidents and about 20 percent of fatal teenage car accidents each year.
A texting driver is over 20 times more likely to be involved in a car accident than other drivers who are paying attention to driving.
Accidents caused by a driver distracted by cell phone use may not be easily determined at the time of the crash. Evidence such as cell phone records must be investigated to help determine if cell phone use was a factor in the accident.
