Texting could be to blame for PA car accident
We have all heard the horror stories about texting and driving on Pennsylvania roads. But, the reality is, although most people know the dangers, people are still texting and driving behind the wheel. Many drivers have made the responsible decision to put the phone down, while behind the wheel, but some are not heeding the dangers so abruptly. Texting and driving is a distracted driving behavior that can easily result in car accident injuries.
This is a behavior that could be compensated by the negligent party and their insurance company. Since distracted driving behaviors are very preventable, it is considered negligent to be distracted while driving.
Negligence occurs when a driver fails to exercise a reasonable amount of care for themselves or other drivers on Pennsylvania roads today. Texting while driving is particularly dangerous because it can take both eyes and hands off the road, both of which are crucial to driving safely.
If you suspect that texting and driving of another driver could have caused your own, or a loved one’s, car accident injuries, it is something worth looking into. This is because compensation and reparations can be the result from bringing a personal injury lawsuit after a car accident.
If someone else is responsible for injury, they should not be held accountable. At the Law Offices of Gismondi & Associates we think so, and we have and will continue to represent clients that have suffering injury after a terrible car accident.
Car accident injuries can put the injured person at a real disadvantage. To even out that automobile accident injury, it is only natural to seek reparation from the negligent party involved. Filing a lawsuit is one way to help the injured pay for the medical expenses and to account for the pain and suffering a car accident injury all-too-often results in. Texting and driving is considered negligence and thus compensable behavior.
