Those Who Send Texts to Drivers Can Be Liable if Accident Occurs, Court Rules-What Role WIll Legal Nurses Have in Such Cases?

The article, “Those Who Send Texts to Drivers Can Be Liable if Accident Occurs, Court Rules”, by SPN Staff Writers states

“Those who knowingly send texts to someone behind the wheel can be held liable if the recipient is involved in a crash as a result, a New Jersey court has ruled.”

American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight:
New Jersey is passed a new law which could try to prosecute people who send texts to drivers.  While this law is controversial and may meet challenges elsewhere it points to the danger of texting while driving.  It also brings a new legal element of lawsuites.  Legal nurses may play big roles in some of these cases in the future.
