Was Someone Talking Or Texting On A Cellphone?
Many car accidents are caused by driver inattention. We’ve all seen drivers fiddling with radios, eating ice cream cones, even taking care of children while driving. Cellphone use is another dangerous distraction to well-meaning drivers.
Cellphone Car Accidents Are Preventable
Over 200 million Americans use cellphones to stay connected, and that number is rising every day. Unfortunately, many people dial, send and read text messages, and return and make cellphone calls; this activity leads to careless driving. That convenience is costly in terms of serious head injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones and death.
Massachusetts law on cellphone use is still developing. It is against the law for a school bus driver to use a cellphone while driving. Individual municipalities like Brookline prohibit cellphone use in cars. We are able to make a compelling case for negligence and liability if the cellphone use directly contributed to the accident. We investigate all aspects of the car wreck and interview witnesses. We call on experts to reconstruct the accident, and medical experts to assess the nature of your personal injury.
