Why is Texting While Driving So Hazardous?

Thirty-nine states plus the District of Columbia now have texting bans while driving. Georgia is one of the states with a texting ban for all drivers. If you suffer serious injury in a vehicle accident caused by a texting driver, find out how an attorney can protect your rights.

The University of Utah conducted a study where psychologists used a high-tech driving simulator to test drivers and evaluate their responses to traffic situations when texting and using cell phones. The study revealed valuable information that substantiated the dangers drivers face on the road while using cell phones and texting. Data from the study indicated the following:

  • Accidents by texting drivers were six times the number of accidents of non-texting drivers
  • Texting drivers pose more risk for accidents than drivers talking on cell phones
  • Texting drivers responded more slowly to cars braking in front of them
  • Drivers using cell phones divide their attention between the conversation and the road
  • Texting drivers focus most of their attention on texting with very little, if any, attention on driving during the moment they text
  • Reading text messages was more distracting to driving than composing text messages
  • Texting drivers tend to decrease the following distance between their car and other cars

When drivers violate Georgia’s texting ban law and cause an accident, their violation points to negligence, which can be used to prove fault in a car accident case. An car crash lawyer can investigate your accident and gather evidence to help you negotiate a settlement or obtain a verdict through trial.

Testimonial
  • "I was involved in an auto-accident with a drunk driver and after several weeks of frustrating interactions with their insurance company, I decided to contact Evan Kaine. He was upfront and honest about how the process works and never made any promises or raised my expectations. Evan understood that my first priority was to take care of the medical expenses that I incurred and he completely delivered. Communication is essential and I spoke directly with him and was never pawned off to another person. Bottom line - Evan Kaine gives lawyers a good name." - M.T. Atlanta, GA

  • "Evan Kaine is a great attorney who kept me informed on all activity regarding my case. Always willing to go the extra mile to put me at ease. Very knowledgeable and thorough, always examining my case from every angle. I have recommended him to several friends and will continue to do so. Overall great legal service." - B.S. Roswell, GA

  • "My boyfriend Michael was hit by a drunk driver while he was driving my car. Even though I wasn't involved in the accident, Evan made every effort to make the process of getting my new car painless for me. He worked with my insurance company, kept in touch with me personally, and made me aware that he was working on my case around the clock. He also helped Michael get his medical bills paid ASAP. I would highly recommend Evan Kaine! " - B.D. Atlanta, GA

  • "I was in a minor car accident and wasn’t sure that I even had a case. I met with Evan and he explained the law in terms I could understand. I immediately hired him and Evan turned my questionable case into more than $50,000.00! Evan is upfront, honest and expects the same from his clients – and he doesn’t take half of your money! I highly recommend Attorney Evan Kaine." - G.S., Smyrna, Georgia

  • "To everyone LIKE ME who has had to deal with attorneys AND has that bad taste in their mouth because they have been taken advantage of because their lawyers are more interested in making money and not caring about YOU, well please allow me to introduce you to Evan Kaine. I was in a very tight position and Evan could not have been more professional, courteous or kind and, again, HONEST! Once more, as a person who has been through the trials and tribulations with lawyers, good, bad or indifferent, if you have an issue, PLEASE contact Evan and I mean this from the heart! " - R.K., Suwanee, Georgia and Palm Beach, Florida
