Texting While Driving


In recent years, texting while driving has sparked a national conversation on what constitutes carelessness behind the wheel. Many states, including Virginia, have passed laws to penalize drivers for texting while operating a motor vehicle. Accidents caused by texting drivers can cause serious personal injury and even wrongful death. Despite the associated dangers and legal sanctions, countless Virginia drivers continue to text while driving.

If you have been injured by a texting driver, you may be entitled to compensation to cover your medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

Driscoll, P.C., offers free initial consultations for victims of texting while driving accidents, and is ready to put his experience to work for you.

Texting while driving in Virginia is against the law

In Virginia, you can be pulled over if a police officer suspects you of texting while driving, and you may be subject to a fine. Virginia has passed texting while driving laws because of the dangers associated with cell phone use behind the wheel. However, accidents caused by texting drivers continue to cause serious harm and even fatalities.

Dealing with insurance companies after a texting while driving accident

Oftentimes after a collision that results in personal injury, insurance companies will make a "one-time" initial settlement offer, hoping you'll accept far more than what you could potentially get with help from a skilled texting while driving accident attorney. By accepting a settlement offer, you may be waiving your right to pursue further compensation.
