Were You Injured By A Texting Driver? You Have Rights.

Most states, including Florida, have passed laws against texting and driving. However, these laws are generally difficult to enforce. More than that, the penalties for texting and driving aren't high enough to deter motorists from engaging in dangerous distracted behavior on the road. Where the criminal justice system has failed to deter those who text and drive, the civil justice system can provide a strong motivation for drivers to keep their eyes on the road.
