Did A Cellphone Play A Part In Your Accident And Injuries?
Risky use of cellphones while driving is a hazard of our modern lifestyle. Distracted driving has always been a danger that sometimes leads to accidents. The introduction of cellphones into our daily lives has resulted in a growing number of varieties of distracted driving, including:
- Texting while driving
- Talking on cellphones in heavy traffic
- Distraction by way of GPS devices
- Use of tablet computers and other mobile devices while driving
Texting While Driving Is Illegal
If you were injured in a car or truck accident, or if a loved one was killed in a traffic accident, one of the most important questions to answer is, “How did the accident happen?” When a detailed investigation reveals that a driver was on the phone or texting while at the wheel, this piece of information can be critical to a personal injury case.
When The Townsley Law Firm represents people injured in motor vehicle accidents, our attorneys are diligent to look into all possible cases, including cellphone use. Subpoenaing cellphone records is part of a well-executed, thorough investigation after a car or truck accident. If we represent you after a car accident, we want to know whether cellphone use or some other driver error by the other driver resulted in a heightened degree of negligence. If the answer is “Yes,” this can be important for your case.
Was Your Car Accident Caused By Another Driver’s Texting While Driving?
After a serious injury, it is important not to face the insurance companies alone. You need to keep the odds on your side as you pursue compensation for serious injuries or death of a loved one.
