Drunk Driving and Texting Accidents

Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyer

Unfortunately, many individuals are injured and killed every year by drunk drivers. Distracted drivers who drive while texting or engaging in other activities also account for serious traffic accidents. Both of these types of drivers are clearly guilty of negligence in failing to act responsibly while operating a motor vehicle and can be held accountable for the injuries they cause to others.

Your attorney at our firm will work diligently on your behalf to recover the maximum compensation you deserve through skilled and aggressive negotiation with the insurance company or by taking your case to court.

Accidents Involving Drunk and Distracted Drivers

Statistics for 2009 show that 32 percent of fatal auto accidents across the nation involved drunk drivers. More than 10,000 fatalities occurred from drunk driving accidents where the driver's blood alcohol concentration was .08 or higher. These types of fatal crashes were 4 times higher at night and twice as likely to occur on weekends as opposed to weekdays.

Texting has also become a major source of accidents, especially for teens and other young people who text or talk on cell phones while driving. A study conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute showed that texting by truck drivers increased their risk for an accident by 23 times. This same study showed that texting was the most dangerous of all cell phone activity for drivers.
