Law Office of Rick Terrana, P.A. Discusses Texting and Driving

Rick Terrana explained that if a person has been hurt in an accident caused by a distracted driver, that person may be entitled to compensation for injuries.

!Tampa (I-Newswire) December 20, 2013 - In an effort to bring attention to the epidemic of distracted driving in both Florida, and the United States, Tampa attorney Rick Terrana published an article on the topic of texting and driving. The written piece was intended to give readers a window into laws that 41 states have against texting and driving, and the sad reality that most still have no real way to keep drivers from using cell phones or smart phones.

Terrana tracked the harsh facts associated with distracted driving by explaining that approximately 53% of drivers are estimated to be using their cell phone or smart phone to email or text, in traffic, during any given daylight hour on the road. In 2011, at least 1.3 million crashes involved cell phone use. The Tampa personal injury attorney was sure to stress that even if a driver is not texting, the cell phone can be a distraction if they are reading a message or about to respond to a text message.
