Each morning, millions of Californians buckle up, take a deep breath, and prepare to navigate a highway obstacle course bursting with distracted drivers. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately one-third of all licensed drivers read or send text messages while operating a motor vehicle. Although it may only take 5 seconds to type and send “lol,” that’s just enough time to injured or kill a pedestrian, weaver into another vehicle, or overlook critical work zone signs.

T exting While Driving Statistics
Research completed by the U.S. Department of Transportation states that distracted drivers are responsible for 3,500 fatalities and 400,000 injuries each year. Despite popular misconceptions, it isn’t just teenage drivers who can’t keep the eyes and hands cell phone-free. In fact, safe driving experts claim that young people learn their dangerous driving habits by watching their parents. Unfortunately, the threat of California’s cell phone ban isn’t enough to keep drivers from texting.
A serious accident can lead to injuries that require extensive medical treatments and ongoing rehabilitative services. If you’re struggling to afford the overwhelming scope of your injury-related expenses, it may be time to discuss your legal options with an experienced personal injury lawyer.

By taking legal action, you may be able to recover the following compensatory damages:
- Past and future medical expenses

- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment in life
- Physical impairment
The outcome of your case depends on your legal team proving that the defendant is responsible for your medical condition and any injury-related financial losses. Many people find it difficult to financially support their families and manage their medical debts when their injuries prevent them from returning to work. So where can you turn? Even if you feel pressured by your financial situation, it’s imperative that you don’t accept an insurance company’s initial settlement offer. An insurance company adjuster’s goal is to minimize the company’s total losses by undermining your claim and limiting your compensation. Our California car accident lawyers can review their offer and counter it with an amount that actually meets your financial needs and alleviates your medical debts. Otherwise, you may find yourself facing severe economic hardships in the future.
