Greenville, NC Texting & Driving Accident Lawyer


Sadly, a common sight is that of people on their phones looking down at their phones while driving. While using hands-free technology can be helpful, far too many drivers decide that a quick peek at their screens is safe. This is demonstrably untrue. Anything that takes your attention away from the road and the other drivers around you is dangerous. One of the most dangerous things that anyone can do while operating a vehicle is to try to text. 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2021, distracted driving took 3,522 lives. Out of that number, 644 were passengers, pedestrians, or bicyclists. Additionally, an estimated 362,415 people were injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes involving distracted drivers.

Those texting while driving can cross over one hundred yards in just a few seconds while traveling at an average speed on the highway. This can easily cause an accident if something unexpected happens, such as someone changing lanes or a curve in the road. 

Not only is texting and driving dangerous, but it is also highly illegal. This means that if you or a loved one was harmed in an accident caused by another driver texting on the road, they were not only negligent but also unlawful. 


While a case involving texting and driving may seem “open and shut” to you, it is common for insurance companies to try and prevent you from receiving fair compensation when their client is in the wrong.
