Texting while driving is quickly becoming one of the most prevalent causes of motor vehicle accidents. In 2009, it was reported that 5474 people were killed in accidents involving distracted driving. This means about 15 people per day were killed by distracted drivers. Countless more were caused severe and significant injuries as the result of distracted driving. At the Law Offices of Samuel Fishman, we are experienced at obtaining full financial recovery for victims of car, truck, and motorcycle accidents involving distracted driving.
Texting While Driving is Illegal!
In both Pennsylvania and New Jersey it is illegal to text while driving. While sending and receiving text messages has become an everyday occurrence, it has become clear that texting while driving is extremely dangerous and must be stopped. Prohbiting texting while driving is one step that the goverment has taken to help protect the public against unnecessary death, injuries, damages, pain, and suffering. Despite being illegal, everyday people continue to disregard the law and take their eyes off the road to read and send text messages. As long as people continue to text while driving, the number of people killed or injured by distracted drivers will continue to increase.
