Trial Lawyers Volunteer To Help End Distracted Driving

The American Association for Justice and the non-profit group end Distracted Driving (EndDD) have teamed up to engage plaintiff’s lawyers in helping to spread the message about the dangers of distracted driving, and to get attorneys involved in the movement to end this dangerous practice. As April has been designated National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, TTLA is encouraging the membership to get involved and become advocates for safer driving in our Texas communities.

At the 2012 American Association for Justice (AAJ) Winter Convention, more than 60 trial lawyers met to learn about efforts to end distracted driving. It was a message taken to heart. Over 750 trial lawyers have now volunteered to speak in schools across all 50 of the United States and Canada this April during National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The volunteer effort will save hundreds of lives and reach a new generation of drivers who can spread the safe driving message among their peers.

The National Safety Council (NSC) estimates that 28 percent of all crashes or 1.6 million crashes each year is caused by drivers using their handheld or hands-free cell phones and texting while driving.

EndDD has set a goal to reach 100,000 students during National Distracted Driving Month, and thanks to the volunteer efforts of trial lawyers and others, that goal may be exceeded.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
