El Paso lawyers helping victims of texting-while-driving accidents
Drivers who text or talk on their cell phone while driving are putting other drivers at risk for a car accident. Even if a person looks away for less than a second to text on their phone or reach for something in their car, they can cause a rear-end collision. Some experts equate talking on the cell phone and driving to drunk driving. The careless driving and negligence of distracted drivers has even become illegal in some states. In Texas, recent legislation has been passed making it now illegal to text and drive. Reckless driving not only causes minor car accidents but serious and even fatal accidents.
