Accidents Caused by Texting & Driving
Recent statistics show that a driver who is texting is six times more likely to cause an
accident than a
drunk driver. In fact, 25 percent of all car crashes are attributed to texting and driving.
Cellphone usage while operating a motor vehicle can cause numerous serious
- T-bone accidents
- Head-on collisions
- Rear-end accidents
- Parking lot collisions
- Turning accidents
Texting and driving is a form of driver negligence that is inexcusable
and totally preventable. Therefore, those who have been injured by such
a careless driver are often entitled to recover compensation for their
injuries. For help proving your claim against a negligent driver, be sure
to have a skilled personal injury firm on your side.
Proving Driver Negligence in Mississippi
In Mississippi, it is illegal to text while driving. Sadly, many people
still do, and often get away with it until they cause an accident. When
texting while driving is the cause of a car crash, it provides an opportunity
to hold the driver responsible for your injuries. If necessary, our firm
can request the court to grant access to the driver’s phone records
to prove that he or she was using a cellphone at the time of the crash.
