Many people heavily rely on their cellphones for multiple reasons. Whether it is to communicate with others, keep up on current events, or conduct our day-to-day lives. Unfortunately, there are many who can’t keep their hands and eyes off of their phones when they drive, especially when it comes to texting.

If you have been injured in a auto accident caused by a texting driver in Nebraska, Burnett Wilson Law is committed to maximizing your financial recovery. With decades of experience, our distracted driving accident attorneys know the laws and can guide you through the complexities of recovering your entitled compensation.

The Dangers of Texting While Driving

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, driving a motor vehicle while texting is six times more dangerous than driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Based on a report by the U.S. Department of Transportation, cell phones are involved in 1.6 million traffic-related accident every year, resulting in nearly half a million injuries and 6,000 deaths.

Sending or receiving a text can take a driver’s eyes away from the road, hands away from the steering wheel, and mind away from the primary task of operating a vehicle for an average of just under five seconds. At 55 mph, this is like driving the length of a football field while staring at your lap.
