Distracted driving is a leading cause of auto accidents in Pennsylvania. If you have been injured by someone who was talking on a hand-held cellphone or texting while driving, you may be entitled to compensation for all of the damages you have suffered, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and disability.

Pennsylvania Texting While Driving Laws
In Pennsylvania, it is illegal to write or read a text message, instant message, email or other written communication on a cell phone or other mobile device while driving. While the use of a hand-held cellphone is not illegal, it may still be used as evidence that the driver was distracted.
Our lawyers often obtain cellphone records of the other driver following auto accidents. If we can show that the other driver was texting, talking or surfing the Internet at the time of the accident, your case becomes a lot stronger. Pennsylvania juries do not like it when distracted drivers cause accidents that injure innocent people.
Contingency fee representation: Typically, our lawyers handle texting and driving accident cases on a contingency basis. This means we do not charge you unless we win.
