The vast majority of Americans – 97 percent – now own some type of cellphone. The percentage of Americans who own a smartphone has risen to 85 percent, up from 35 percent in the Pew Research Center's first survey of smartphone ownership in 2011.

Cellphones are owned by a sizable majority of Americans across a wide range of demographic groups. In contrast, smartphone ownership varies more depending on age, household income, and educational attainment.

Drivers visibly manipulating handheld devices while driving increased from 2.1 percent in 2018 to 2.9 percent in 2019, a statistically significant increase. Table 3 shows the percentages of drivers who were visibly manipulating handheld devices in 2018 and 2019.

Using a cell phone while driving increases the risk of fatalities and injuries on American roads. In 2019, 3,142 people were killed in car accidents caused by distracted drivers.


It is often necessary to conduct a police investigation or an independent legal investigation to determine whether the driver who caused an accident was using a cell phone. Drivers may not readily admit to being on the phone or texting, but testimony from witnesses or phone records can prove this.

Our car accident lawyers routinely subpoena defendant drivers' cell phone records in order to establish civil liability in motor vehicle accidents.


Unless the vehicle is stopped, reading, writing, or sending electronic messages while operating a vehicle on a public roadway is a violation of Texas Transportation Code Section 545.4251. This section was added to Texas Transportation Code Section 545.425, which already prohibited the use of a cellphone or mobile device in a school zone. One exception to this rule is when you use it in a hands-free setting – that is, when you play with it in your hands.

Using an electronic device while operating a vehicle on public school property is also a violation of Texas Transportation Code Section 545.4252. This section was added because a school parking lot is not a public roadway. As a result, you are not permitted to use your mobile device while driving, even in a public school parking lot or anywhere else on school property.

When it comes to drivers under the age of 18, Texas Transportation Code Section 545.425 is even stricter. A driver under the age of 18 is not only not permitted to read, write, or send messages on a mobile device, but they are also not permitted to use a hands-free device.

Very professional job handling my accident claim. I had some ER bills, and some visits to my ortho after (and various other bills that kept coming in). I was afraid I was going to get stuck owing money, but Doug Goyen took care of the case and had everything paid, including compensating me for the injury. Great lawyer IMO. I felt like my case was taken care of very well. Thx!! Bernard M.
Doug is a great attorney. He took care of my auto accident claim promptly, and answered any questions I had. I also had one of my hospital bills go into collections for non-payment. I was able to contact Doug a year after the accident, and received a copy of the check the hospital claimed they didn’t receive. I highly recommend this guy. David J.
The Law Office of Doug Goyen helped me recovery every bit I was owed on my claim. Very happy I used them. They knew what they were doing, and kept me informed. I felt taken care of the whole way. You wont go wrong using them. Arthur H.
Mr. Goyen helped me take on my own insurance company, the great and mighty Allstate. My prior firm basically dumped me, with a permanent injury because the case didn’t meet their financial guidelines for a settlement. I was a bicycle rider hit by a car driver at an intersection, and Allstate was the company on BOTH SIDES OF THE CLAIM. My own insurance company tried to throw me under the bus to limit their payout! Without Mr. Goyen’s help, I would have been left with NOTHING! I had thousands of dollars in unpaid medical bills, unable to receive treatment to correct the issue. He was unafraid and helped me get the best settlement I could … I am tremendously thankful! Pamala M.
