With the rise in cellphone use and texting as a primary means of communicating, more and more people are using their phones for talking and texting while driving. This is often referred to under the umbrella term distracted driving. Texting while driving creates a hazard similar to the level of risk from drunk driving. Many jurisdictions, including Chicago, have passed laws that only allow hands-free cellphone use while driving in response to this risk.
It can be hard to know if the motor vehicle accident you were injured in was caused by distracted driving. Our firm has the resources to subpoena phone company records that can confirm whether or not a driver was talking on the phone or texting at the time the accident occurred.
Having a skilled and experienced personal injury attorney representing you can help ensure that you recover the full compensation you need after a serious accident.
