California Texting And Driving Laws
California law bans texting while driving, including the use of electronic devices for writing, sending and receiving text messages. Drivers who violate this law can and should be held accountable for injuries that are caused by their negligence.
Texting Is A Serious Problem
Texting and driving is a significant problem that has been on the rise in recent years. Drivers who are typing, sending or reading texts divert their eyes from the road. Tragically, that momentary distraction may cause an accident that seriously injures or kills another driver, pedestrian or bicyclist.
Crash data statistics from numerous sources indicate that texting while driving significantly diminishes driver safety. In fact, some studies show that texting while driving has a more significant impact on driver responsiveness than drunk driving.
Have You Been Injured In A Texting And Driving Accident?
If you or a family member has been injured in a motor vehicle accident that was caused by texting or any other form of driver negligence, you have a right to be compensated for the cost of your necessary medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other injuries and losses.
Put A Strong Advocate On Your Side
I am personal injury lawyer Chris Purcell, and I am committed to protecting the rights of accident victims. While my objective is to help you obtain the compensation you require for necessary medical care and support, I understand that your case is about more than just money. You have a right to justice, the person who caused your accident should be held accountable, and the insurance companies should not be allowed to take advantage of accident victims.
My job is to level the playing field. All too often, the insurance companies push people around and fail to honor their responsibilities. I prepare cases for the possibility of trial, negotiate with a firm resolve and take cases to trial when necessary to ensure that my clients are treated fairly. You can rely on me to fight for you.
