Boston Lawyers: Cell Phone Use Crashes
As our society has become more dependent on technology, people are often easily distracted and lose focus on the task at hand. This is particularly dangerous when a person is distracted by a cell phone while behind the wheel. Texting while driving car accidents are on the rise and our Boston attorneys will fight to get compensation for people hurt in these types of accidents.
Drivers Have a Duty to Pay Attention to the Road
Although it is illegal to text while driving in Massachusetts, it is not illegal to talk on a cell phone while driving. While it may be legal to talk on a cell phone while driving, it may be negligent. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, drivers who use phones or other hand-held devices are four times more likely to get into an accident than those who are not on the phone. If you have been involved in an accident with an inattentive driver, you may be eligible for compensation.
