Fort Lauderdale Texting Accident Attorneys

Pursuing Justice for Distracted Driving Victims

Texting And DrivingDistracted driving – particularly the kind that involves texting on a smartphone – has risen dramatically over the last decade. With over 3,100 lives lost to texting accidents in 2017 alone, it’s clear that this trend will only continue, as this dangerous habit becomes more and more commonplace.

If you or a loved one have been injured by a driver who was texting and driving, you are entitled to take legal action against that negligent driver. By holding them accountable in a civil court, you may not be able to reverse time and undo the damage – but you may be able to secure financial compensation for your future peace of mind. At Rosenberg & Rosenberg, P.A., our Fort Lauderdale texting accident lawyers can help you navigate that process, and fight for justice after a tragic crash.

To pursue a texting accident lawsuit in Florida, simply call (888) 499-6206 for a free consultation with our seasoned legal team.

The Consequences of Texting and Driving

Most people realize that texting while driving is a risky activity, but few people really understand how deadly the consequences can be. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), it takes at least 5 seconds to read a text. During that time, you may cover the length of a football field if you’re going 55 mph or above. That is rarely enough time to halt before colliding with another vehicle.

In addition to the inherent visual distraction, texting also poses a risk for both manual and cognitive distraction. Because of its distracting power, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimate that over 391,000 people have been injured as a result of a texting driver, or because of their own distractions on the road. With 10% of those injuries resulting in fatality, texting and driving is a risk that no one can afford.

Holding Drivers Who Text Accountable

In spite of the statistics, many informed adults still choose to text while they drive, with some drivers even reporting that they stream videos through Netflix or Hulu, or browse social media platforms like Instagram. In fact, up to 50% of all iPhone users admitted in a recent survey that they have texted, taken photos, browsed the internet, or watched videos while driving.

If you or your loved one was hurt because of a negligent driver, you may have grounds to pursue a texting accident lawsuit against the at-fault party. Although Florida is a no-fault state for car accidents, texting can often be considered a form of extreme negligence, and it is also illegal. With the help of a skilled attorney, you may be able to pursue a civil lawsuit against the at-fault party, by demonstrating that they were indeed using their phone at the time of the accident.
