Texting and Driving Kills — Dr. Frank Ryan’s Death While Texting and Driving is a Warning says Craig Murphy, Esq.

Las Vegas accident and injury trial lawyer Craig Murphy, Esq.

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) August 19, 2010

On August 17, 2010 Dr. Frank Ryan, famous Hollywood plastic surgeon, died when his Jeep plunged off of a cliff near his Malibu beach home. News sources widely report that he was texting while driving. People Magazine reports that his texting while driving caused him to accidentally drive over a cliff and plunge to his death. The Los Angeles police, according to People Magazine, told Dr. Ryan’s family that at the time of his death, Dr. Ryan was sending a Tweet about his dog.

For months and months Las Vegas accident attorney and injury trial lawyer Craig Murphy of Murphy & Murphy Law Offices has been warning people not to text and drive. Even Oprah Winfrey has taken on the cause by making a number of public information commercials warning of the dangers and tragic results of texting while driving. Now we have another example. Hopefully it will cause people to stop and consider the dire consequences of texting and driving.

The New England Journal of Medicine recently requested that physicians tell their patients not to send text messages or use their cell phones while driving. In the New England Journal of Medicine doctors were asked to advise patients against texting and using cell phones while driving the same as they warn patients against smoking or supporting the use of seat belts.

At the same time that the New England Journal of Medicine article was published, the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation approved the Distracted Driving Prevention Act. The Distracted Driving Prevention Act provides incentives to states with distracted driving regulations. According to the Senator who co-sponsored the bill, “It’s a proven fact that distracted driving causes thousands of deaths and injuries every year.”

The Distracted Driving Prevention Act did not stop Dr. Ryan from texting while driving. Will Dr. Ryan’s death serve as a warning of the dangers of texting while driving to all drivers? Probably not.

The dangers of texting while driving should be apparent to everyone. Yet every day people can be seen texting while driving. The apparent dangers and laws prohibiting texting while driving do not stop people from doing it. Maybe the tragic death of this famous plastic surgeon can serve as a warning and cause people to stop texting while driving.

Take a minute to let the facts of Dr. Ryan’s death sink in. A famous doctor plunges to his death while Tweeting about his dog. What was so important about that text message that it had to be done while he was driving? Why couldn’t it wait until he got home? He was only minutes away from his house. This is a case of a tragic death that could have been prevented because common sense was ignored. The rules of the road that apply to everyone were ignored and had a tragic ending. Dr. Ryan’s tragic death begs the question why people think that their texts are so important that they and anyone else in their social network cannot wait to hear the latest bit of trivia in their lives and they text while driving. Texting while driving has severe and tragic consequences. This is a prime example. There was absolutely no reason that the text message could not wait. Dr. Ryan gambled his life and lost. All for a text about his dog.

According to Las Vegas accident attorney and injury trial lawyer Craig Murphy, Esq. “It does not matter what your text is about. It cannot be worth risking your life and the lives of all the other people around your car.” Craig Murphy, Esq. advises “Do not text and drive. Text when you get home. If it is so important that it cannot wait, pull off the road. Park in a parking lot. Just do not text and drive.”
