Cell Phone Use While Driving
With the advent of cell phones, individuals can stay connected to their family, friends, and work at all times. Unfortunately, individuals who choose to do so while driving may become distracted while talking on the phone. Drivers who use their cell phones while they drive have been statistically shown to be at greater risk for causing auto accidents.
Drivers who cause accidents because they are distracted by their cell phones should be held accountable for their actions. Contact the Sheboygan car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today at 800-242-287 for more information.
The Dangers of Cell Phone Use
Cell phones today have several functions. In addition to making calls, they also connect to the Internet, send text messages, and have games. While many drivers are wise enough to refrain from these distractions, others are not. Drivers who use their cell phones while they drive may:
- Divert their attention from the road
- Pay less attention to their fellow motorists
- Veer into other lanes of traffic
- Fail to observe warning signs
Each of these actions makes these distracted drivers more likely to collide with a fellow motorist. When this happens, individuals may suffer serious harm. Victims of this harm may be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries.
While cell phone use during driving is not illegal in every state, it is usually dangerous, unless you have a hands-free setup.
