West Virginia Distracted Driving Laws

In West Virginia, drivers under the age of 18 with learner’s permits or intermediate licenses are completely forbidden to operate a cell phone or hand-held electronic device while driving. Drivers of all ages are prohibited from texting while driving.

Text messaging while driving is against the law for all drivers in West Virginia. But that does not stop this dangerous practice from happening. The result can be a serious T-bone or rear-end accident.

Evidence in a Distracted Driving Accident Case

Cell phones leave a trail of evidence. Our law firm will act quickly to preserve this evidence. Evidence may include the cell phone itself and call records indicating the time the text messaging took place. In addition, information from the vehicle’s GPS can indicate the location and speed of the at-fault distracted driver’s vehicle.

Our West Virginia distracted driving lawyers will also place a value on the full amount of your financial losses and suffering. If you lost a loved one, we can help you explore your legal options for compensation in a wrongful death case. The Manchin Injury Law Group will seek the best possible result for you.
