Young Man Died Texting And Driving

 

The parents of a young man who died in a texting and driving accident are hoping that the image of his final, unfinished text message will help prevent other families from experiencing the same pain in the future, according to 9 News. The young man rolled his vehicle after veering into oncoming traffic while looking down at his phone, typing a text message, and was killed at the scene. When police arrived, his final text conversation was on his phone, with an unfinished message that he had been in the middle of sending. The Greeley police chief said that many people tell themselves that they will just send this one quick text, but more often than not, that turns into a habit of texting while driving.

You may be entitled to compensation for present and future medical bills, property damage and lost wages from time off work during recovery. You may also be entitled to pain and suffering to help compensate you for loss of enjoyment of life or loss of companionship.
