Miami Texting and Driving Accidents Attorney
Texting while driving is extremely dangerous. Many crashes happen each day due to cell phone use while driving. Collisions caused by drivers who text while behind the wheel can lead to serious injuries or even death. When a driver allows any distraction to get in the way of driving a vehicle, it puts everybody on the road in danger. In fact, texting and driving has been proven to be even more hazardous than drinking and driving. If a texting driver injured you or a loved one in an accident, you have the right to get a full financial recovery for your lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering and more. Contact Mr. Quackenbush - he can help you to pursue all compensation that you are due.
Nowadays, distracted driving has caused a shocking increase in car accidents. A crash can easily occur if a driver is not paying attention to the road.
Another common reason for distracted driving is talking on a cell phone/mobile phone while driving. One other type of distracted driving is surfing the internet or looking at social media. Cell phone usage while driving a vehicle significantly increases the risk of a car accident.

If you’ve been the victim of someone else’s texting and driving, you might be able to recover punitive damages against that person. Punitive damages are designed to punish actions that go beyond simple carelessness (rather than to compensate the victim). These damages are intended to help deter people from making the same types of dangerous choices in the future. In order to be awarded punitive damages, you will need to show that the driver acted with intent or with a conscious disregard for the safety of others.
In the State of Florida, texting-and-driving is not a “primary offense”. This means that you cannot be pulled over and ticketed just for texting and driving. However, texting and driving is a secondary offense. This means that, if you are committing another traffic offense (for example, speeding or running a red light/stop sign), you can be pulled over and given a ticket for texting and driving if you were doing that at the time you committed the primary offense.
Legislators in Tallahassee are working to alter this law. Legislation to make texting and driving a primary offense has been proposed, even though it has not yet passed through the Legislature.This Miami-Dade Texting and Driving Collision Attorney/Lawyer Discusses the Consequences of Distracted Driving
Texting while driving can have serious consequences, and the texting driver is not the only person at risk. Other drivers, passengers, and pedestrians can be injured or even killed as the result of a texting while driving driver’s behavior. If a driver is texting and driving, the driver might not see a person riding on a motorcycle or a bicycle. This is particularly true if the accident occurred at night, and the lighting conditions in the location of the accident are insufficient.
In the texting and driving accident, if a pedestrian passes away, the family of the pedestrian might be able to pursue a wrongful death case against the offender. In a wrongful death case, a family member or loved one of the deceased person will be selected as the personal representative of the decedent’s property. The personal representative (PR) will act as the technical “plaintiff” and will carry on the court case on behalf of the deceased person. When the wrongful death case comes to a resolution, the survivors or beneficiaries of the decedent’s property will receive the proceeds from the case.Contact this South Florida Texting and Driving Accident Law Firm to Obtain Compensation for your Injuries
