Texting While Driving Laws

The state of Texas has banned school bus drivers and first year drivers from any cell phone use while behind the wheel. San Antonio has banned all drivers from texting while driving since 2010, with fines of $200 for a first infraction. Drivers are allowed to make calls on their cell phones, but nothing else. Current legislation is pushing to extend the law to ban phone calls as well.

Texting while driving is classified as distracted driving under the law, and can lead to fatal accidents and serious personal injuries. In 2011, 1.3 million crashes involved cell phone use. Researchers estimate that when a driver uses a cell phone for texting or otherwise, they are distracted from the road for a minimum of five seconds. In that time, a driver may not see the traffic light turn red; the brake lights turn on ahead of them; or a child dart out into the street. Text messaging alone increases your crash risk by 23%.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a texting while driving accident, call Trevino Injury Law immediately at (210) 255-3088.

Texting while driving is gaining a lot of attention as a highly dangerous activity. Tragic injuries have resulted from distracted drivers, who are often among their own victims. Yet one in ten drivers still report regularly texting while driving. Rear-end and T-bone accidents are among the most common types of collisions texting drivers encounter.

Common Driving While Texting Accident Injuries:

  • Concussion and Brain damage
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal injury
  • Broken bones
  • Torn ligaments and muscle damage
  • Internal brusing or organ damage

Texting While Driving Claims

Driver inattention can be more difficult to prove than other causes of accidents, and requires a thorough investigation.

An experienced legal team can gather the necessary evidence to show a phone was being used at the time of collision, proving driver negligence. Contact Trevino Injury Law to pursue damages for medical bills, loss of wages, and personal injury and distress.
