Would You Drive Across a Football Field Blind?

If you asked most people if they would drive the length of a football field with a blindfold on, they would reply, "Of course not!" However, studies have discovered that sending or receiving a text takes a driver's attention away from the road for the same length of time as it takes to drive from goal post to goal post at 55 mph.

Texting while driving is a serious type of on-the-road negligence. If you or someone you loved was injured by someone else's negligence in this way, we can help. We will pursue full and fair compensation for your lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, and other losses.
