When Distracted Driving Causes South Carolina Car Accidents (Part B)

Texting as a Form of Distracted Driving

The New York Times
reported in a 2009 article that American teenagers sent and received an average of 2,272 text messages per month-that's an average of more than 75 a day! While seemingly endless banter is a celebrated part of being young, in today's modern world it can easily lead to dangerous distracted driving.

It's not just teenagers who are guilty of occasionally being a kind of negligent driver and picking up the cell phone; all types of distracted driving and distracted drivers can cause a serious South Carolina car accident.

After a South Carolina Accident with a Distracted Driver

Even if you're lucky enough not to be seriously injured, South Carolina car accident law naturally includes distracted driving as a determination for negligence, which could entitle you to compensation from those liable. Everyone should understand the simple and potentially lifesaving logic of waiting a few minutes to read or return a text, or even to grab that item from the passenger seat or glove box.

If you were injured in a South Carolina car accident, which may or may not have been the result of distracted driving, a Charleston personal injury attorney can help build a strong case on your behalf, while you focus on recovery.
