Distracted Driving: Texting and Driving Accident Attorneys in Phoenix
No driver should ever pick up their cell phone while operating a vehicle. Texting while driving makes drivers 23 times more likely to cause an accident. In fact, texting and driving is more likely to cause a crash than drunk driving.
In Arizona, it is illegal to drive while talking or texting on a cell phone unless the device is in hands-free mode. For this reason, there are boundless grounds for legal action if you’ve been injured in an accident caused by a driver who was texting on the road.
Cruz & Associates is proud to serve the Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale and Glendale communities with top legal guidance regarding auto accidents.
Have You Been Injured in a Texting and Driving Accident?
With over 660,000 drivers using a cell phone behind the wheel at any given moment, being involved in a texting and driving accident is an unfortunate reality for many. Injuries from the accidents can include broken bones, burns, head trauma, neck and back trauma, whiplash, ejection, or even prove fatal.
It’s recommended you seek medical attention after an accident even if you believe you haven’t been injured. Certain trauma may not show up immediately. After an accident, you should also notify the police immediately, file a report, and get in contact with insurance companies from both parties.
