In Light of New Research Findings, Parker Waichman LLP Warns about Risk of Texting While Driving

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the legal rights of car accident victims, is alarmed about new findings showing that a significant number of teenagers have texted while driving. On May 6, 2013, Science World Report* reviewed findings from a study showing that at least 43 percent of high school students of driving age text at least once while driving.

Alexandra Bailin, principal investigator and research assistant at Cohen Children’s Medical Center in New York, stated that "Texting while driving has become, in the words of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, a 'national epidemic.’" Reportedly, the risk of getting into a car accident is 23 times higher while texting and driving.

The study used information from the 2011 Youth Ri
