Texting While Driving Accidents: A Deadly Trend

Despite advances in auto safety, fatal crashes are on the rise, and experts point to one major cause: distraction. Texting while driving creates a crash risk 23 times higher than driving while not distracted. Sending or receiving a text message takes a driver’s eyes from the road for an average of 4.6 seconds. When traveling at 55 mph, driving 4.6 seconds without your eyes on the road is like driving the length of an entire football field blind.  Drivers who text, tweet, take photos, or check messages behind the wheel not only risk their own lives, but they also endanger everyone else on the road.

According to the NHTSA’s 2015 numbers, traffic fatalities involving a distracted driver sharply increased by 8 percent, from 3,197 to 3,477. Unfortunately, most of these fatalities involved young, inexperienced drivers.

The Scranton texting while driving accident lawyers of Munley Law believe that distracted driving is a negligent, if not downright reckless, action. When that recklessness harms or kills another person, the responsible driver must be held accountable.

 

Texting While Driving is Illegal in Pennsylvania

Because of the dangers posed by distracted driving, it is now a crime in Pennsylvania for any driver, no matter what age, to use a portable electronic device such as a cell phone or wearable technology to send, read or write any type of written communication while a vehicle is in motion. A conviction can lead to a $50 fine, plus court costs and other fees.

If you have been injured as the victim of this negligent criminal behavior, you have the right to seek compensation for your losses. An experienced Pennsylvania texting while driving accident lawyer at Munley Law knows how to conduct independent investigations to determine how an accident occurred. This includes obtaining cell phone records to determine whether a driver was texting or using social media at the time of the wreck. In addition, our attorneys work closely with a network of medical experts, economists and life-care planners who can fully document the extent of a victim’s injuries and financial losses. We believe in strong and resolute settlement negotiations with insurance companies. We are aggressive and effective courtroom advocates when insurance companies refuse to provide proper settlements.
