Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
The Cochran Firm Wisconsin LLP, whose car accident lawyers represent victims and their families throughout Milwaukee and surrounding areas, has added new content to its website to warn about the dangers of texting while driving.
The content includes an infographic that describes why texting while driving can lead to accidents and injuries, provides statistics illustrating the consequences of texting behind the wheel and features a summary of Wisconsin’s distracted driving laws.
“We’re very concerned about the rise in the number of texting-while-driving accidents in Wisconsin, particularly among young drivers, and the senseless injuries and deaths that these accidents can cause,” attorney Will Techmeier said.
“Fortunately, there has been an increase in efforts in Wisconsin and across the country to raise awareness about the risks caused by texting behind the wheel, and our firm wanted to contribute to those efforts by adding this new content to our site.”
Techmeier pointed out that, in September, the Wisconsin State Patrol, AT&T and AAA held a series of events around the state to talk about the dangers of texting and driving as part of the “Don’t Text and Drive: It Can Wait” awareness campaign.
“Our hope is that drivers – especially teen drivers – understand the risks and refrain from texting when they are driving, but unfortunately, the reality is that too many people will fail to recognize the danger,” Techmeier said.
“Our firm is dedicated to promoting traffic safety,” he said, “and we remain committed to helping those who are injured by careless or reckless drivers who cause accidents because they choose to text instead of focusing on driving.”
