Texting And Driving Accidents

Distracted driving is a huge problem in Texas, injuring thousands of people every year. Far too many drivers take the safety of the people around them for granted while they use their phones to send and receive text messages when they should be concentrating on the road.

Texting and driving is now against the law in Texas. But it will probably take time before this deadly habit fades away completely. If you have been in a car accident with a distracted driver and suffered catastrophic injury as a result, you will need the assistance of an attorney. At the Law Office of Roberto Salazar, we have represented residents of the Rio Grande Valley since 1989.

Our cases involve some of the most catastrophic injuries imaginable. Our goal for each client is to get fair and just compensation so that the client does not have to suffer financially because of someone else's negligence.

Driving While Distracted

Driving is a complex task that requires full concentration. Motorists who split their focus have a much greater chance of causing a wreck. Texting or talking on the phone while driving is probably the most well-known version of distracted driving, but there are a lot of ways to get distracted behind the wheel, including:

  • Eating
  • Personal grooming
  • Adjusting the radio
  • Fatigue

Drivers have a legal duty to everyone else on the road to drive reasonably safely, because they are operating huge, fast-moving machines that can cause terrible harm if used improperly. A distracted driver who caused you serious harm should be held accountable for what he or she did. Our experienced personal injury lawyers are prepared to help you fight for justice and to make sure he or she never does it again.
