Texting While Driving Accidents
Attorneys Holding Distracted Pennsylvania And New Jersey Drivers Accountable
Every year, hundreds of people in Pennsylvania are injured by drivers who text or talk on cellphones or do other things that take their attention off the road. In fact, we recently handled a case where a driver was distracted while eating sunflower seeds. Pennsylvania, along with many other states, has taken action to curb distracted driving, especially texting while driving. Even so, many drivers continue to jeopardize the lives of others by talking and texting.

Understanding Pennsylvania’s Texting While Driving Laws
It has been illegal for Pennsylvania drivers to text while driving since March 2012. This law is considered a “primary” law, which means an officer can pull a driver over for cellphone use or texting without having to see any other type of violation. Of course, the law is designed to prevent car accidents caused by distracted driving.
How A Pennsylvania Lawyer Can Help
After nearly three decades of personal injury experience, our Pennsylvania attorneys understand how to gather evidence, including cellphone records that may show that a driver’s phone was in use at the time of the collision. If it turns out that texting while driving contributed to your car accident, truck accident or other auto crash, that gives us an advantage when negotiating a settlement with the insurance company.
