Accidents Caused By Distracted Driving
Distracted driving is a plague of our times when drivers routinely use mobile devices such as cellphones, GPS systems and tablet computers while at the wheel. During traffic jams, drivers sitting for long periods may be able to access such devices with little risk involved. However, when traffic is moving, a driver must give full attention to surroundings, including stop signs, curves in the road and movements of other vehicles, pedestrians or bicyclists, to name a few potential hazards.
A Thorough Investigation Can Reveal Cellphone Use At The Time Of The Accident
If you were injured in a car, truck or motorcycle accident, part of a thorough investigation should include a review of any evidence that a driver was distracted while texting, changing radio stations or engaging in heated discussions with passengers. We can subpoena cellphone records, interview eyewitnesses and review police reports in search of likely causes. If we uncover evidence of distracted driving, we are prepared to use this information as we prepare compelling arguments on your behalf.
