Texting Accidents

Marietta Texting Accident Lawyer

Injured in an accident in Marietta?

If you were the victim of a car accident caused by a driver who was texting, you need to contact our team so that we can protect you. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, texting while driving means that you are 23 times more likely to cause a car crash. There are three main types of driver distraction, and texting encompasses all three. Manual distraction means that the driver's hands were removed from the wheel. This could be while sending a text, while talking on the phone, eating, putting on makeup, and more.

Visual distraction means that the individual took their eyes off of the road. In order to send one text, the individual's eyes are off of the road for 4.6 seconds. Although this may not seem like a lot, it is like they are driving blindfolded over an entire football field. Lastly, cognitive distraction means that their mind was elsewhere and not on the task at hand. Reading and replying to a text message is a form of cognitive distraction, as is talking on the phone or talking to another passenger in the vehicle. In 18% of fatalities caused by distracted drivers, the cause of the fatal accident was cell phone usage.
