The popularity of mobile devices has led to some unintended and even dangerous consequences. A recent survey found that 26% of cell phone owners admit to texting and driving and that nearly 60% of drivers between the ages of 16 and 19 drive while texting. Young adults have even posted videos of themselves texting while driving on YouTube, and nearly 600 people have joined a Facebook group called “I Text Message People While Driving And I Haven’t Crashed Yet!”
The problem with texting is its increase in the risk of accident. A recently released study by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) (http://www.vtti.vt.edu/) said that a driver’s risk of collision is 23 times greater when they are texting.
If you or a loved one was injured in an accident caused by a driver distracted by his or her cell phone, it is important to seek the assistance of an accident lawyer to assure you receive maximum compensation for your injuries.
