Texting while driving is still a serious problem across the country, Connecticut included. It is unfortunate that, despite repeated warnings and laws being put in place, many drivers still choose to text while operating their motor vehicles. Because of this choice, numerous car accidents happen -- some of which prove fatal. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a texting-related auto collision, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your losses.
