Distracted Driving Accidents and Cellphone Use Attorney Northern Jersey
Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer Representing Distracted Driving Cases in Morris County, Burlington County, Sussex County and Beyond
Distraction on the road has traditionally been caused by reading, putting on makeup, turning one’s head to speak with passengers or taking one’s eyes off the road ahead. These are all still major sources of distraction, but these days most distracted drivers are using a cellphone or other digital device in some way:
- Texting while driving
- Reading messages or news on a phone
- Using a GPS device
- Using a digital tablet while driving
- Watching videos or looking at pictures while driving
Distracted driving accidents are just as likely or even likelier to occur as drunk driving accidents. Distracted drivers outnumber drunk drivers, and their reaction times while driving are equally poor.
Thorough, Independent Investigation Of Your Injury Claim
One of the first things we do is pull the other driver’s cellphone records. We immediately review the police report, the accident scene and witness statements to determine if driver distraction was a factor. Proving that the other driver was distracted is proving negligence, getting us one step closer to maximizing your compensation.
