Texting & Driving Accident Attorneys in Sacramento

Fighting on Your Behalf to Help You Recover Compensation

It is no secret that texting and driving is a terribly dangerous habit. Unfortunately, many drivers, especially younger ones, continue to engage in this hazardous and distracting practice, putting their lives and the lives of others at risk. Looking away from the road, even for a matter of seconds, can result in a deadly accident. In fact, if a driver is traveling at 55 mph and looks away from the road for 5 seconds to read or send a text, he or she would have traveled the length of a football field without looking at the road.

If you sustained injuries in an accident involving a distracted driver, you need to obtain skilled legal representation. At Del Rio & Caraway, P.C. in Sacramento, our experienced personal injury attorneys are prepared to provide the exceptional legal guidance you need during this difficult time.
