Texting & Driving Accidents

Texting & Driving Accidents

Albuquerque Personal Injury Attorney

Why is texting and driving so popular? The question has bothered safety organizations since the advent of the cellphone. It may be due to the fact that people falsely believe that an activity that is so simple cannot also be so dangerous. The truth is that in the time it takes for the average text message to be typed and sent, a vehicle may travel hundreds of feet or more, putting everyone at risk.

At our law firm, we have seen the effects of car accidents caused by negligent drivers through the lawsuits we bring against them on behalf of our clients.

Even a low speed collision could result in:

  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Paralysis
  • Brain damage
  • Wrongful death

If you or a loved one have been hit by another driver, your case could be strengthened if it can be shown that they were texting while driving. Allow our Albuquerque Personal Injury Attorney Michael J. Doyle take your case and do the difficult work for you. That way you can rest and recover while we look for a legal solution that fits your needs.

Three Forms of Driver Distraction

Texting and driving is dangerous. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), along with several other renowned safety organizations, believe it is so inarguably dangerous due to the fact that it engages a driver in three distinct forms of distractions all at once. By themselves, each distraction form can readily cause a car accident, but when compiled together, they nearly ensure that one will occur.

The three forms of driver distraction caused by texting & driving are:

Cognitive: Allowing your mind to wander off the task.

Manual: Removing hands from the steering wheel.

Visual: Taking your eyes off the road and away from mirrors.
