Texting Accident Lawyers Serving Beaufort, Hilton Head Island - Let Us Protect Your Rights
The dangers of texting while driving are well-documented. Scientific studies show the accident risks associated with drivers who pay more attention to their cell phones than the road ahead. To address this public safety threat, the state of South Carolina in June 2014 became the 49th state to ban texting and driving. Unfortunately, some people will ignore the law and choose to text, check their email, take photos or visit various social media sites while driving. In fact, cell phone-related accidents remain one of the top causes of car accidents in South Carolina.
Texting and driving is illegal - and is a highly dangerous activity from Beaufort to Bluffton. Texting drivers who cause a car accident will be held accountable. At Twenge + Twombley, our Beaufort, SC texting accident attorneys know that drivers preoccupied by cell phones cause some of the state's most serious accidents, and we will hold them responsible and help send a message that such behavior will not be tolerated.

Common forms of cell phone distraction
Common forms of cell phone distraction reach much further beyond a simple text message or phone call. These include the following:
- Checking email
- Browsing the internet
- Taking or uploading photos
- Posting on social media sites
Without the aid of an experienced attorney, it can be difficult to prove a driver was on his or her cell phone. A texting driver may deny he or she was on her phone at the time of the accident. An attorney can help uncover cell phone records, including texting history and browsing history, to determine the driver's behavior in the moments leading up to your accident.
