TEXTING ACCIDENTS

Thousands of lives are tragically lost in fatal crashes each year. According to Injury Facts® 2014, the National Safety Council's annual report on unintentional injuries, the three biggest causes of fatalities on the road include the following:

 

  • alcohol (30.8%),
  • speeding (30%), and
  • distracted driving (26%)

 

Many distractions are out there, but cell phone use has recently been ranked as the number one distraction and the number three cause of crashes.

 

 

 

 

DID YOU KNOW?

  • In 2010, an estimated 160,000 crashes involved texting or e-mailing with a handheld device
  • The NSC reported that by 2011, there were more cell phone subscriptions than people in the United States
  • According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), sending or receiving a text message takes a driver's eyes off the road for almost five seconds

 

WHAT TO DO NOW

Not only do the victims of distracted driving cases deserve to be compensated for their injuries or loss, but a message must be sent loud and clear in order to hold drivers responsible for their choices.  Scott Pryor Law can assist clients in getting established and scheduled with excellent doctors for their treatment and can also help them in seeking compensation for ongoing issues or impairment that, unfortunately, may last a lifetime.
