Driving and Texting (DWT) can be a deadly combination, and today in Austin The House Transportation Committee will consider legislation to institute a statewide ban on texting while driving.
The average "texter" takes their eyes off the road for an average of 5 seconds and this
fact increases the drivers chance for an accident by 23 percent.
Since January of 2009, 14 states and the District of Columbia have banned texting while driving.
When a motor vehicle accident is linked to texting AND causes a traumatic brain injury or other bodily harm there may be grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death suit. The Leon Law Firm www.theleonlawfirm.com can help you or your family with representation in this type of case.
So, remember, put the phone down while your driving. That will ensure you will be around to take your next call .
