San Antonio Texting & Trucking Accident Lawyer
Because truck drivers are on the road for months at a time, it’s not uncommon for truckers to stay in touch with family and friends with their cell phone. Texting while driving is prohibited for all drivers under Texas state law and talking on a hand-held cell phone is a secondary offense, meaning that drivers cannot be stopped only for cell phone use. The laws for truck drivers are even tougher. All commercial truck drivers nationwide are prohibited from texting while driving.
If you suffered an injury in a trucking related accident and you have reason to believe that the driver of the truck was distracted by texting, it’s important to contact a knowledgeable Texas truck accident attorney from our firm as soon as possible. The effect that distracted commercial truck drivers are having on the accident rate in the trucking industry has dramatically increased since the increase in the popularity of texting.
