Distracted driving is the leading cause of auto accidents, and as the prevalence of texting has increased, this percentage has continued to increase. Texting and driving is incredibly dangerous and puts lives in jeopardy. Texting and driving is illegal in the state of Florida. This type of distracted driving leads to, at the very least, a traffic citation, and at the very worst, an injurious or fatal accident.
Obviously, keeping your eyes on the road is the best way to avoid an auto accident. Unfortunately, you can’t control everyone else on the road. One driver’s foolish mistakes can dramatically impact one’s life. It is important that your rights are upheld when you or someone you love has become a victim of an auto accident caused due to a texting driver.
A driver needs cognitive focus, manual focus, and visual focus to be fully in control of their motor vehicle. Texting while driving means that the driver does not have both hands on the wheel, and their attention is not focused on the road where it belongs. These two distractions reduce awareness and reaction time.

Protect Your Rights as a Driving & Texting Victim

When someone else’s texting and driving negligence has caused an accident, it is important that the victim’s rights are upheld and justice is served. Florida’s distraction law states that an individual should not be texting and driving. If negligent behavior causes you or a loved one pain, injury, or death, then you should be fairly compensated.
