In Pennsylvania, if you’ve been in a car accident and the other person was texting while driving, the driver could face fines, court costs, and possible jail time.
If personal injury is involved, the driver could face reckless driving charges or careless driving penalties. Texting while driving is a summary offense, but reckless and careless driving charges could mean that driver spends time in prison.
Who pays for the damage and injuries depends on who was at fault and/or what is covered by your insurance plan.
