Some of the most serious and deadly car accidents are those caused by distracted drivers. Whether the driver is texting, talking on their cellphone or engaging in some other type of distracted driving behavior, that one second of distraction can lead to a deadly car crash. Negligent drivers should be held responsible for their actions. If you or a loved one was seriously injured in a distracted driving accident, it is very important to seek the help of a skilled personal injury attorney.

Texting And Driving Is Illegal
Not only is texting while driving a distraction for drivers, it is also illegal in Virginia. A driver caught texting and driving could face a traffic violation and a fine. However, there is more than just this at stake when a driver chooses to engage in this illegal act: Lives are at stake. Some studies have shown texting while driving is actually comparable to driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. As you can see, this can lead to serious and catastrophic injuries and even deaths.
