Seeking Full Compensation After Being Hit By a Driver Who Was Texting

Texting while driving has reached epidemic proportions in Rhode Island, despite the fact that it is against the law. And it's not just teenagers engaging in this dangerous practice - adult drivers do it, too. The result can be a serious car accident. The laws in Rhode Island state:

  • Bus drivers may not use cell phones at all
  • Adult drivers may not text and drive
  • Minor drivers may not use cell phones at all

According to the Rhode Island state police's website, more than 15 people are killed each day and over 1,200 are injured because distracted driving. It has even been shown by the CDC that texting while driving increases your crash risk by 23 times.
