San Antonio Texting and Driving Accident Lawyer

San Antonio Texting and Driving Accident and Injury Lawyer Alex R. Hernandez Jr.

San Antonio Area Leads The State In Fatal Distracted Driving Crashes

TxDOT reports that Bexar County saw the most fatal distracted driving crashes in 2017 with 45.

San Antonio’s hands free ordinance went into effect in 2015. Texting while driving has been illegal in San Antonio since 2010. Since then it has been illegal to text and drive. It is a crime. Therefore, it is negligent per se to text, drive and cause an accident.

Texting and Driving Officially Banned in All of Texas September 1, 2017

Studies have shown that texting while driving and other distractions can mimic — and even exceed — the effects of drunk driving. Our experienced Texas attorneys help victims hold distracted drivers responsible for the pain and suffering they cause.

Drivers interacting with cell phones to perform tasks like texting or surfing the Internet are two to eight times more likely to be involved in a crash.

Taking your eyes off the road for just two seconds doubles your chances of being involved in a crash.59 percent of all teen crashes involve some form of driver inattention, and 12 percent of teen crashes involve cell phone use. https://www.ktsa.com/san-antonio-area-leads-the-state-in-fatal-distracted-driving-crashes

TxDOT campaign fights texting while driving

“Talk/Text CRASH,” is an interactive traveling exhibit that has used driving simulators, video tablets and graphics to demonstrate the dangers of distracted driving across the state for the past five years.

The Talk/Text CRASH exhibit presents an immersive, interactive look at the dangers of texting. While most visitors might be familiar with the driving simulator — an often replicated feature that instructs participants to perform basic tasks on their phone while operating a replica wheel attached to a car seat and screen depicting oncoming hazards — other elements of the presentation offer viewers a more emotional connection.

Let us help you if you or a loved one has been injured by someone who was texting and driving.  Alex R. Hernandez Jr is ready to work diligently on your case.
