Driving While Texting in Coral Springs

Florida's Driving While Texting Laws

The use of cell phones, PDAs and even laptops while driving are causing significant increases in the number of car accidents. Recently enacted laws make it illegal for a driver to write, send or read text messages while driving. Persons 18 years old or younger are also prohibited for using a wireless device when they are behind the wheel. A driver will be fined for texting while driver, but can also incur harsher penalties if their texting resulted in an accident.

When a car accident is caused by texting, the distracted driver can be held liable for damages. Even if you believe you were partially responsible for the incident, you may still qualify for compensation under the state's comparative negligence laws. If you were injured by a driver that was texting, contact a car accident attorney to discuss your compensation options, including monetary damages for:

  • Medical treatment and care
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma
  • Rehabilitation
  • Property damage
  • Lost current and future wages
