Mississippi Texting & Driving Accident Lawyers

Dependable, Professional Representation for Car Crash Victims

Every year, countless distracted drivers cause accidents that leave innocent people devastated by serious injuries. Many of these collisions are caused by drivers who are glued to the screens of their cellphones. If you were involved in a texting and driving accident in Mississippi, Richard Schwartz & Associates Injury Lawyers, P.A. can provide the aggressive advocacy that you require. 

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 collisions, including:

  • T-bone accidents
  • Sideswipes
  • 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.
