Many cities in the State of Texas have placed a ban on texting while driving. If you are hit by a vehicle while the driver was texting and distracted behind the wheel, he or she may be held accountable. The amount of compensation to be paid, if any, will be determined by factors such as the nature of your injuries, the expected sum of lost wages, pain and suffering incurred and whether or not the guilty driver has similar offenses.
