West Palm Beach Texting and Driving Accidents Attorney
Texting and driving is one of the main causes of automobile accidents in the State of Florida. Looking down at your cell phone for a couple of seconds or less is all it takes to cause a crash to happen. When drivers make the decision to text while driving, they put not only their own lives at risk but also the lives of everyone around them. This reckless behavior causes numerous motor vehicle accidents throughout West Palm Beach every year, and the consequences of these wrecks can be disastrous. If you have experienced an injury or death of a loved one after a collision and you believe texting and driving might have been involved, you should contact Mr. Quackenbush for help.
One of the leading causes of accidents these days is distracted driving. Distracted driving can include uses of a cell phone other than texting – these include surfing the internet, Facebook usage and using Twitter, Instagram or Skype. These usages take the eyes of a driver off from the road and make a crash much more likely.

You might be able to recover punitive damages if you have been the victim of someone else’s texting and driving. Punitive damages are intended to punish the offender, rather than compensate the victim. In order to get you punitive damages, Mr. Quackenbush will file a motion for entitlement to punitive damages.
In a texting and driving case, sometimes punitive damages are permitted by the judge because the texting was intentional and/or reckless. Texting and driving in the State of Florida is not a primary offense. This means that you cannot be pulled over and ticketed only for texting and driving. However, texting and driving is a secondary offense. This means that, if you are committing another traffic crime (for instance speeding or running a stop sign/red light), you can be pulled over and given a ticket for texting and driving if you were doing that at the time you committed the main offense.
In Tallahassee, lawmakers are working to change this law. Legislation to make texting and driving a primary offense has been proposed, though it has not passed through the Legislature yet.This Palm Beach County Texting and Driving Collision Attorney/Lawyer Discusses the Consequences of Distracted Driving
Texting while driving is one of the most unsafe activities in which a person can participate. The sad truth is that many people are seriously hurt or lose their lives every year due to accidents caused by texting and driving.
Frequently, drivers who are texting and driving cause harm, injuries or death to pedestrians. When a driver is distracted, the driver may be more prone to drive off the road. If this happens, the driver might drive into and injure and/or kill a pedestrian.
Death can, unfortunately, result from texting and driving accidents because there are usually such high speeds and forces involved. If your loved one died in a texting and driving accident, then, on behalf of your loved one, you might be able to pursue a wrongful death case. You or another family member or relative will act as the technical “Plaintiff” in a wrongful death case and bring the case on the behalf of your loved one. The proceeds from the case will be received by the beneficiaries of the estate (i.e. decedent’s survivors).Contact this South Florida Texting and Driving Crash/Wreck Law Firm to Obtain Compensation for your Injuries
