Texting and driving is a hot topic these days. If you ask any auto accident attorney, they will tell you about all of the dozens of cases that they regularly handle involving accidents where the party at fault was on the phone while they were driving. Many of the defendants and plaintiffs are proven to have been texting while they were driving, which is becoming a very serious issue in the world of distracted driving. There are a lot of ways that you can lose focus when you are behind the wheel of a car, but text messaging while you are driving is a lot more distracting than people realize.
Across the nation, cities everywhere are putting bans on texting and driving. They don't want to see innocent people hurt for no reason, and they won't want to deal with the mass of accidents that occur because people simply aren't paying attention. These types of bans include a variety of fines and punishments that drivers face if they are busted doing the deed while going down the road. In some places, a monetary fine is imposed. Other areas have specific restrictions that they put into place for offenders. Minors and young drivers often face a lot more trouble for disobeying traffic laws like this because law enforcement wants to get the point across.
If your city has a ban on texting and driving and it is the cause of an accident that you were involved in, your auto accident attorney can help you get more out of your case. Not only are you the victim in an accident, but you are the victim of an accident where someone was disobeying the law, deliberately, and that gives you a much better chance of fighting your case and proving that you deserve the outcome that you are seeking.
Forget about lawsuits and settlements, thought. Any Bradenton Accident Attorney knows that the real truth behind texting and driving bans is about safety and wellbeing. People get so caught up in their daily lives that they can't focus on the road for fear of missing something. Before you pick up your phone to send a 'quick message' or respond to one of your friends, think about what you have to say. Is whatever you are texting worth your life, or someone else's life? The answer is probably no, so even if your city doesn't have a law against texting and driving, put your phone down and drive.
