Texting While Driving Accident Attorney in Fairfield County
Texting while driving is illegal in Connecticut, but that doesn't stop some people from making careless choices that put the lives of others at risk.
Drive long enough and you'll likely notice some dangerous behavior by other drivers. Perhaps it's a car on the Merritt Parkway or I-95 drifting in and out of its lane. Several decades ago that would've been a sign that the driver was drunk. Nowadays, it's likely the driver is texting, which some studies say may be even more dangerous than driving while intoxicated.

If another driver is preoccupied with his cell phone and hits your car, you need a Fairfield County texting accident attorney on your side. You need someone working diligently to protect your rights.

Alarming statistics about texting while driving accidents
The National Safety Council estimated in 2011 that at least 100,000 accidents a year can be traced back to drivers who are texting. An earlier study by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute found that text messaging made the risk of a crash or near crash 23 times as high as non-distracted driving.
