Aurora Cell Phone Car Accident Injury Attorneys
It is clear to see that cell phone use and texting while driving is a problem. Not only do studies show that distracted driving from cell phone use can reduce reaction time in a similar manner to intoxication, but accident statistics show that thousands of people a year are injured or killed because of accidents that involve distracted driving.
Some municipalities have dealt with this by making it illegal to drive while texting. Whether or not a driver is charged with a crime, if cell phone use led to an accident, it is negligence, and that driver should be held accountable. Our firm will subpoena cell phone records, and based on the timing of the accident, we can see whether the driver was on the call when the accident happened.
