Texting While Driving Accidents

Were you injured in a car accident where the other driver was been texting at the time of the crash? It is imperative that you retain legal representation immediately so as to build the strongest case.

The Dangers of Texting While Driving

Texting while driving is a serious problem that contributes to many car accidents every year.

According to statistics:

  • Distracted driving is involved in 80% of all car accidents nationwide
  • People who text while driving are 23 times more likely to get into a crash
  • Texting decreases response time to traffic signals and brake lights by 20 to 30%
  • Texting takes your eyes off of the road for 4.6 seconds
  • Using a cell phone while driving, whether it's handheld or hands-free, delays a driver's reactions as much as having a blood alcohol concentration at the legal limit of 0.08 percent

Texting while driving has been proven to be dangerous time and again-and yet drivers continue to do it. As of January 2014, it is illegal for Illinois drivers to use a cellphone while driving.
