We all know someone with a texting addiction — he or she can’t seem to put his or her phone down. Whether you are at a restaurant, in a meeting, or in the car, that person is compulsively checking his or her phone for texts, e-mails and missed calls.
Some studies tell us what many of us already know. Some people are addicted to texting and to checking their phones and some of these people will cause accidents that seriously injure or kill other people.
It is important to know whether a particular driver has a texting addiction. If an addiction is properly identified then, perhaps, treatment can be obtained before a tragedy occurs. Likewise, if a person with an addiction causes your accident injury or the death of your loved one then it is possible that the addiction should be addressed after the accident so that another accident doesn’t occur.
Addiction is scary and can cause serious problems. If a distracted driver has caused your accident, please contact an experienced personal injury lawyer today for a free consultation about your legal rights and potential legal recovery.
