Enforce new anti-texting & driving laws

California lawmakers are looking to place additional restrictions on teen drivers' use of mobile devices. In an effort to reduce car accidents, California law currently prohibits texting and driving. It also prohibits drivers under the age of 18 from talking on their cell phones while driving, even if drivers are using a hands free mobile device.

A new bill was recently introduced by California state Sen. Cathleen Galgiani. The bill clarifies provisions of already existing law to prohibit drivers under 18 from texting and driving with the use of new technology, such as voice-operated devices. It would essentially broaden current laws to prohibit the use of any electronic wireless communications device by young teen drivers.

Despite the laws already in place, young teens continue to text and drive. Accidents causing injury or even death are an unfortunate consequence of the texting and driving epidemic. For this reason, victims of accidents caused by distracted drivers need to be aware of their legal rights. In many cases, a personal injury claim can be filed against the responsible party. Compensation for items such as pain and suffering and lost wages are possible in many cases. Contact us, we can help you through this process.
