Texting While Driving Is Illegal In Texas
Texas recently enacted a law that makes it illegal to send text messages while driving. It makes a range of other activities — emailing, posting to social media, checking game scores — illegal to do behind the wheel as well. Offenders will be charged with a misdemeanor and face moderate court fees.
This is as it should be. Roughly one out of every four auto accidents is caused by distracted driving. This leads to hundreds of thousands of injuries and thousands of deaths. Texting drivers are six times more likely to get into an accident than drunk drivers.
If you or a loved one has been hurt in a collision with a distracted driver, the attorneys at Kyle Law Firm can help. It’s important to hold the responsible party to account; our lawyers have more than 60 years of combined experience doing exactly that. Based in New Braunfels, and serving throughout the region, we’re always prepared to provide top-quality legal assistance.
Getting The Compensation You Need
We have earned millions of dollars on behalf of our clients. In every case, our goal is to maximize the compensation they receive. While no settlement or monetary award can undo the effects of an accident, financial restitution can help individuals get their lives back on track.
Our firm can help you pursue compensation for a full range of concerns, including:
- Hospital bills
- Doctors’ fees
- Prescription costs
- The costs of ongoing care
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Property damage
- Lost wages
Insurance companies are quick to challenge victims’ claims, seeking to pay as little as possible or deny claims outright. We know how to fight back, and obtain for our clients their fair due.
