Texting While Driving Accidents in Columbia
Columbia Car Accident Lawyer - Texting While Driving
Distracted drivers have always been a concern for lawmakers and there have
been many studies linking texting while driving and other phone-related
distractions as one of the main causes behind a large percentage of avoidable
accidents. Some studies even point to South Carolina as one of the top
states with DWT drivers.
There have been many attempts by the South Carolina legislators to pass
laws restricting the use of cell phones to some extent. Currently, there
are no laws put in place to prohibit the use of cell phones by drivers.
South Carolina lawmakers have made it clear that if you consider the text
on your phone more important than the safety of your passengers or other
drivers sharing the road, you will be responsible for the damages and
injuries that result from this act of negligence.
Laws in South Carolina Regarding Texting & Driving
Cell phone related accidents are a growing trend, and if you were hurt in an accident involving a negligent
cell phone user, you need to contact the right attorney that has the experience
needed to recover the compensatory damages to which you are entitled.
Do not be stuck holding the bill for lost wages and medical expenses.

sure the negligent driver pays for the damages, both in economic and non-economic
