Texting Accidents

One of the most common sights as you are out driving around now is that of people on their phones. While the use of hands-free technology can be helpful, far too many drivers decide that a quick peek at their screens is safe. This is demonstrably untrue. Anything that takes your attention away from the road and the other drivers around you is dangerous. One of the most dangerous things that anyone can do while operating a vehicle is try to text. 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2018 alone, distracted driving took 2,841 lives. Out of that number, 1,082 were passengers, pedestrians, or bicyclists. Those who are texting while driving can cross over one hundred yards in just a few seconds if they are traveling at an average speed on the highway. This can easily cause an accident if something unexpected happens, such as someone changing lanes or a curve in the road. This certainly is true in Eastern North Carolina and Wayne Hardee has seen hundreds of cases involving accidents caused by texting. 

Not only is texting and driving dangerous, it is highly illegal. This means that if you or a loved one was harmed in an accident caused by another driver texting on the road, they were not only being negligent, but unlawful as well. This is something that you can use in a personal injury case and a fact that you should definitely bring up to Wayne Hardee.
