Texting While Driving – Alpharetta Car Accident Lawyer
Injured by a texting driver?
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car,
truck or other vehicle accident, it may be that the driver was texting while behind the wheel. In some cases the driver may admit that this occurred, while in other cases, it may be necessary to subpoena cell phone records to fully establish liability. In many texting while driving accidents, the collision is a rear-end accident, as the texting driver, while focusing on a cell phone or other digital device, does not realize that the vehicle ahead has come to a stop. Rear-end accidents are extremely dangerous, often leading to broken bones, head and brain injuries, as well as cuts, internal injuries and other devastating consequences. At Kalka & Baer LLC, we represent the injured in car accident injury claims, including those involving texting while driving.
Texting While Driving is Illegal
Teen drivers are prohibited from using cell phones while behind the wheel at all, but many young drivers cannot restrain themselves from reading or typing text messages while behind the wheel. Texting while driving has been prohibited under state law since 2010. Drivers in the Alpharetta area, as well as the rest of Georgia, unfortunately rank high on the list of drivers who use cell phones and send or read text messages while driving. This illegal activity puts all other drivers in the area at extreme risk of injury or death. As a driver who is focused on a cell phone cannot possibly be aware of the road ahead, these negligent drivers tend to swerve out of lanes, cross intersections at red lights, or fail to observe a driver who ahead who has come to a stop.
