Texting and Driving Accidents

With the proliferation of cellphones, GPS devices, and other popular mobile devices, texting has become an ingrained way of life for Americans of all ages. When driving and texting coincide, the results can be catastrophic or deadly. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, texting while driving is a particularly alarming form of distracted driving because it requires visual, manual, and cognitive attention from the driver.

Many of us are familiar with numerous examples of crashes, injuries, and loss of life attributed to texting while driving. In New York, texting while driving is not just a bad idea; it is also illegal. New York state law specifies that drivers are not allowed to use hand-held mobile telephones, send texts, or send emails while driving.

Determining The Truth About The Cause Of An Accident

Was the driver who caused your rear-end accident or another type of collision texting while driving? If you were injured or lost a loved one in a traffic accident in New York City or elsewhere, contact The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny. By subpoenaing and reviewing cellphone records, we can search for an answer to that question regarding your or your loved one’s crash.

Demonstrating that a driver was negligent can be critical for strengthening a personal injury claim after a car or truck accident. It is one example of the kind of information we look for when we investigate the causes of car accidents. Our thorough investigations form the basis of compelling injury claims and lawsuits. We aim to hold liable parties responsible for compensating our clients after an auto accident involving texting, other forms of driver distraction, and/or other hazardous factors such as moving violations, defective car parts, or roadway defects.
