Compensation for Car Accidents Caused by Texting

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

Writing and reading text messages while driving is one of the leading causes of vehicle collisions. If you were injured in a car accident because the other driver couldn’t put down the phone, you might be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

Punitive damages are awarded when the defendant’s conduct is deemed to be especially negligent or malicious. Whether or not you can recover punitive damages in a car accident claim will depend on the specific details of your case.

Texting and driving is an inherently dangerous act. If you were injured in a car accident caused by texting, please contact Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter or call (407) 712-7300 today for a free consultation with our experienced Orlando lawyers.
