Statistics for crashes with a distracted driver are troubling

In Virginia, and across the country, the number of motor vehicle accidents due to a negligent driver or a distracted driver are increasing rapidly. Much of the blame for this has to do with the number of ways in which a driver can have the person's focus removed from the road. Driving is still an activity that requires strict attention and things like texting and driving contribute to the dangers on the road, and are a growing cause referenced when there is a car accident.

Dealing with the expenses associated with a car accident

Drivers in Virginia involved in motor vehicle accidents can see their lives change permanently in an instant. Mounting expenses resulting from the accident may soon become burdensome and overwhelming, and may make drivers unsure of what they can do to make their lives whole again.

Texting and driving is illegal in Virginia, but hard to stop

While in Virginia it's well-known that texting and driving is a dangerous activity that can lead to a car accident and injuries, people still choose to do it under the impression that a sending or reading just one text will not cause them to crash. Often, there's a misplaced belief in certain drivers that as long as they're driving below a certain speed, wearing their safety belts and taking quick glances at the road, there's no harm in sending a quick message to a friend. There, however, is potential harm in this practice and it is now illegal under state law.
