Every 24 seconds, a car accident occurs because the driver is distracted by his or her cellphone. The statistics are frightening. In 2010 alone, almost 3,000 people were killed in distracted driving crashes. A crash is 23 more times more likely to occur when a driver is texting. Trial lawyers around the country have volunteered to speak to high schools regarding the dangers of distracted driving.
