Distracted And Drunk Driving Accidents: Helping You Recover
How Common Are Auto Accidents From Texting Behind The Wheel?
The advent of smartphones in our 21st-century world has created a distraction like no other — texting.
According to the National Safety Council, out of the over 1.5 million car accidents that occur each year due to distracted driving from cellphone use, over 300,000 of these happen because of texting behind the wheel.
Drunk Driving Statistics
Accidents caused by drunk drivers also remain one of the leading causes of motor vehicle accidents. According to the latest statistics provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately one-third of all U.S. traffic-related fatalities are attributed to an alcohol-impaired driver.
Despite tough laws banning texting behind the wheel and strict blood alcohol concentration (BAC) driving limits, accidents continue to rise and people continue to get hurt. Fortunately, injured parties and their families have legal recourse.
