Texting While Driving
Texting While Driving Accident Lawyer
Greensboro Car Accident Attorney Assisting Victims
When driver’s turn their attention away from the road, they can end up causing serious car accidents—even if they are only looking away for a few moments. Texting and driving is becoming one of the most common forms of distraction on the road.
Reading or sending text messages while behind the wheel creates three different forms of distraction:
- Manual Distraction – The driver needs to use his/her hands.
- Visual Distraction – The driver’s eyes are diverted to the cell phone and away from the road
- Cognitive Distraction – The driver is no longer mentally paying attention to driving
James has written a few articles on texting and driving if you want to read them.
If you or a loved one has suffered from serious injuries as a result of an auto accident caused by a driver who was texting, you can take action against that negligent driver and seek compensation for any damages that occurred.
These damages might include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Vehicle damage
- Physical pain
- Mental suffering

Texting & Driving Statistics
When drivers receive or send text messages, they end up taking their eyes off the road for an average of 4.6 seconds, according to Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) data cited on Distraction.gov. Within this timeframe, a vehicle going 55 miles per hour can travel the distance of an entire football field. VTTI data also shows that text messaging makes drivers 23 times more likely to get in crashes than drivers who are not distracted.
