It takes just a few seconds for a texting driver to lose control of a motor vehicle and cause a serious or fatal accident. Texting drivers endanger everyone in their vehicles and in nearby vehicles, as well as pedestrians and property.

Damaging effects of a crash, including pain and suffering, may be temporary or permanent.

The law can compensate injured individuals for their losses by requiring the payment of money damages. The role of a personal injury lawyer is to provide accident victims with the legal help they need to recover the maximum amount available from auto insurance policies and other sources.
