Texting & Driving Accidents in Connecticut
Let Our Hartford Personal Injury Lawyers Represent You
Our society relies more and more on our cell phones as a way to communicate
with each other anywhere at any time, even without having to call and
speak to the person. Texting allows a brief message to be sent instantaneously
to its recipient. Unfortunately, as cell phone usage and texting rates
are on the rise,
car accidents caused by distracted drivers also increase.

caused by texting drivers throughout Connecticut. With more than 35 years

Dangers of Texting While Driving
According to studies, a person using a cellphone while driving has an impaired
reaction time similar to that of an individual who is legally intoxicated.
When texting, a driver must take his or her eyes off the road for several
seconds to type or read a message. When a driver’s attention is
not focused on the primary task of driving, he or she may not be able
to react properly in time to avoid any unexpected situations on the road.
In Connecticut, it is illegal to type, send, or read a text message with
a hand-held device. If a person engages in texting while driving and causes
an accident, the fact that they were committing an illegal act is enough
evidence to prove negligence.
