Drivers Who Text And Drive Need To Be Held Accountable

With the increasing popularity of smartphones and mobile devices, more drivers are texting and sending electronic messages while operating motor vehicles. This has had a devastating impact on the citizens of Arizona.

In fact, some studies have shown that a texting driver is far more dangerous than a drunk driver. Remarkably, texting and driving is still not officially illegal in our state. However, if a texting driver caused your accident, he or she may still be liable for your injuries according to Arizona personal injury laws.
