Texting and Accidents - Greenville Texting Accident Attorney

In today's society, it can be difficult to put your phone down. It doesn't seem to matter what age you are, there are people in every generation who have become seemingly addicted to their phones. Whether you're scrolling through social media or playing a game or even just messaging a friend, there's just so much that you can do on that little pocket computer. While it can be nice to unplug every now and then and catch up on your projects or sit outside with a nice drink, in those short bursts of downtime where you don't have the ability to fully relax, the phone is a great alternative.

The problem is that many people don't seem to be able to actually put their phones down. They continue to use their phones even when they should be completely focused on the task they are actively trying to perform. This can include everything from watching their child's newest self-choreographed dance to driving or walking near the street. In some cases it's simply rude or disrespectful, but in others it is downright dangerous. It doesn't seem to matter how many times someone is told that they shouldn't use their phones at certain times, some just don't want to listen.

If you have ever sat at a stoplight and looked around, chances are that you have seen someone texting while behind the wheel. It can be frustrating if you are stuck behind them and need to wait for them to pay attention to the light before you can move, but it can be terrifying if they are still moving while looking at their phone. It only takes a second worth of distraction to get into a crash, and when someone else on the road is looking down at their phone to answer a text, it can be more than enough time to cause an accident.
