There’s no denying that technology has made us all more distracted. Having constant access to emails, social media, text messages, and the internet keeps us glued to our phones. It’s especially dangerous when combined with driving behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.
The number of auto accidents keeps increasing year after year. According to the National Safety Council, there were a reported 42,338 motor vehicle deaths in 2020. That same year in Texas, 367 people died and over 2,200 were seriously injured in distracted driving accidents. If you’ve been injured by a distracted driver, a lawyer can help you get money back.
