Car Accident Lawyers Explain the Dangers of Texting & Driving, Winston-Salem, North Carolina

Texting and driving has become one of the most common causes of auto-related deaths in the U.S. Every day, nine Americans die from texting and driving, which is why the car accident lawyers at Nagle & Associates, PA in Winston-Salem, NC, stress the importance of avoiding the practice.

The rise of mobile technology has created many conveniences and, unfortunately, many new risks. Texting and driving falls under the umbrella term “distracted driving”, and car accident lawyers  know that many drivers admit to writing and reading texts while driving—33% to be exact.
