Our Aggressive Lawyers Will Defend the Rights of Victims of Texting Truckers
Distracted driving is one of the top reasons for accidents on the road, particularly with the use of cell phones behind the wheel. Texting while driving can be a particularly dangerous situation on highways, especially when the texting is done by truck and bus drivers. If you've been injured in an accident caused by a texting trucker, our truck accident attorneys will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
The federal government formally bars truckers and bus drivers from sending text messages while behind the wheel. The legislation was part of a growing effort to make laws to eliminate the threat of distracted drivers. But some truckers still text behind the wheel, or drive while distracted by something else.
Fully loaded tractor trailers can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. When a trucker is texting and not paying attention to the road, the effects can be devastating. It only takes a few seconds of not paying attention to cause an accident that leaves people seriously injured for the rest of their lives.
