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. If you were not the at-fault driver, our Columbia personal injury lawyer will investigate all the evidence available to support a claim or lawsuit to pursue damages. The attorney representing you will fight hard to make sure the negligent driver pays for the damages, both in economic and non-economic losses, including pain and suffering.
