    PENNSYLVANIA GOVERNOR WOLF SIGNS BILL TO DETER TEXTING AND DRIVING

    November 21, 2016 by admin

    Distracted driving is dangerous. The lawyers at Liever, Hyman & Potter, P.C., in Reading, PA know that first hand, and have handled many cases in which distracted driving resulted in accidents causing serious injury or death.

    On November 4, 2016, Pennsylvania Governor Wolf signed “Daniel’s Law,” which enhances the penalties for an accident caused by texting while driving resulting in serious bodily injury or death.  The Bill Signing, Press Release states:

    Today, Governor Wolf signed “Daniel’s Law,” which enhances the penalties for an accident caused by texting while driving resulting in serious bodily injury or death.

    “I am proud to sign House Bill 2025 into law which enhances the penalties for distracted driving in Pennsylvania that results in a severe injury, or death,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “This behavior, which has been allowed to go under-punished for far too long, has been demonstrated to be just as dangerous as drunk driving. Distracted driving has fatal, irreversible, and grave consequences and by signing this bill, I hope to make our roads and highways safer for our citizens, and everyone using them.”

    “It is our hope Daniel’s Law will lead to safer roads by raising awareness of the serious consequences that can happen when you text while driving,” Representative Jaret Gibbons said.

    “I was honored to stand up for the Gallatin family when they came to me after suffering this horrible tragedy. While we cannot bring Dan Gallatin back, at least his family will know that through this law, his loss will help to save lives,” Gibbons said.

    This law is named for Daniel Gallatin, a father, grandfather, military veteran, and fireman of nearly 40 years who was killed in May of 2013 when his motorcycle was struck from behind by someone who was texting while driving.

    According the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 3,328 deaths were caused by distracted driving nationwide in 2012 and approximately 421,000 people were injured in accidents involving a distracted driver. Here in Pennsylvania, more than 14,800 crashes in 2015 were caused by this practice, resulting in 66 deaths. It is imperative that we make sure that our drivers are aware of the consequences of distracted driving to eliminate senseless deaths caused by this dangerous behavior.”

    It is best to engage an experienced injury lawyer to help you pursue claims for damages arising out of an automobile accident.  The lawyers at Liever, Hyman & Potter, P.C. have handled many automobile accident cases in the Reading and Pottsville areas successfully.
