Texting & Driving Accidents in Nashville

Were You Injured by a Distracted Driver?

A distracted driver has a significantly higher chance of causing an accident. If a driver of a car or truck is texting, talking on a cell phone, or using a cell phone or PDA in some other capacity, it puts other drivers and passengers at risk of serious injury and wrongful death. At Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge, our attorneys have extensive experience helping injury victims throughout Tennessee and neighboring states. We have the experience, skill, and resources to handle complex personal injury cases involving catastrophic injuries and wrongful death.

The Dangers of Texting & Driving

Texting while driving is dangerous and Tennessee lawmakers have taken note. In 2009, Tennessee banned text messaging while operating a motor vehicle, making it a Class C misdemeanor. The following statistics about texting while driving accidents come from a study conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute:

  • Driving while dialing a cell phone increases the likelihood of a crash or near-crash by 280%
  • Driving while talking on a cell phone increases the likelihood of a crash or near-crash by 130%
  • Driving a truck while texting increases the likelihood of a crash or near-crash by more than 2300%

This study—and others like it—tell us that driving while distracted, whether through cell phone use or another reason, puts innocent lives at risk. Our lawyers at Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge are committed to helping injury victims and holding careless drivers accountable. We have successfully handled numerous car accident cases and have the resources to fully investigate the causes of car accidents. We can help you protect your rights.
