Your legal rights
Ohio’s laws clearly state that all drivers cannot text while driving. For drivers under 18 years old, texting while driving is a primary offense, meaning a police officer can stop a younger driver and cite them for texting while driving.
For drivers over 18 years old in Ohio, texting while driving is secondary offense. That means the police officer can only stop a texting driver over 18 if the police officer observes the driver doing something else illegal.
But just because a driver seemed to be texting at the time of the accident, that doesn’t automatically mean that you will be fairly compensated for your accident. That’s because many drivers deny texting at the time of a crash. And that’s where we can help you.
