Sending or receiving text messages while driving and texting can be a deadly combination. While driving your car, you should be giving the road your full attention. Unfortunately, most people learn the hard way and discover all too late the effects of texting while driving.
On August 28, 2013, a County of Sacramento Jury awarded $680,000.00 to a woman who was seriously injured in a car accident which was caused by a driver who was distracted with a text message.
The driver’s insurance company offered $300,000.00 to settle the case in response to a demand of $500,000.00; an amount based on the woman’s medical expenses, loss of wages, and need for future surgery and medical treatment. The jury award included medical cost, pain and suffering, lost past wages, and future damages.
