Tirelessly Fighting for Full Compensation in Distracted Driving Cases

As your Dallas auto accident lawyers, Frenkel & Frenkel understands the pain and damage that distracted drivers can cause.

Common causes of distracted driving accidents

Sure, here's a list of common causes of distracted driving accidents:

  • Texting or using a phone while driving
  • Eating or drinking while driving
  • Talking to passengers or engaging in other activities that take your attention away from the road
  • Grooming, such as putting on makeup or adjusting your hair
  • Adjusting music or other controls in the car
  • Daydreaming or not paying attention to the road ahead
  • Rubbernecking or looking at accidents or other incidents on the side of the road
  • Fatigue or drowsiness
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

It's important to remember that any activity that takes your attention away from the road can lead to distracted driving accidents, so it's crucial to stay focused and alert while driving.

Texting and Driving Laws in Texas

Texting and driving is undeniably one of the most hazardous distractions for drivers. It seriously threatens road safety, diverting the driver's attention from the road. Texting requires both hands, which should be on the steering wheel, and causes a significant lack of focus on driving, particularly when the driver must look down at their cell phone. This makes texting and driving an unsafe practice and puts the driver and other road users at risk.

Because texting and driving can be dangerous, Texas adopted a law banning it. As of September 1, 2017, drivers caught texting and driving are punishable by a fine of up to $99. Repeat offenders will be charged up to $200. While dozens of cities in Texas had previously enacted a distracted driving law, the law will now be enforced statewide.
