Auto accident attorneys frequently represent individuals who have been seriously injured in crashes because the other driver was texting. In fact, distracted driving is among the leading causes of car accidents and a major reason behind visits to a personal injury lawyer. You can hear more about the dangers of texting while driving by watching this video. It follows a study conducted by two drivers seeking to compare the effects of texting while driving and drunk driving.
First, the drivers went through the course without distractions. Then, they both texted while driving. Their reaction times were measured throughout the course. Third, they drank enough alcohol to put their blood alcohol content (BAC) percentages at just over the legal limit. The results clearly demonstrate that driving while drunk and distracted both significantly impair driving. Had the duo been driving under real conditions, they would have likely needed to consult a car accident lawyer. If you’ve been the victim of a drunk or distracted driver, a personal injury lawyer serving Douglasville can help you.
