Accidents Caused By Cellphone Use

Early in 2010, CBS reported on a research study that showed one in four car accidents occurred while drivers were using cellphones, both handheld and hands-free devices. The U.S. Department of Transportation hosted the second annual Distracted Driving Summit in Washington, D.C., on September 21, 2010. In the words of U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, "Every single time someone takes their eyes or their focus off the road – even for just a few seconds – they put their lives and the lives of others in danger."

If another driver caused the car accident that caused you serious injury or took the life of your loved one in a fatal car accident, that fact is relevant to your claim for compensation. Was the other driver talking on a cellphone or sending and receiving text messages while driving in the moments before your crash?
