Today, almost every American has access to bank accounts, email, navigational maps, and contact with other individuals using their cellphone. While this simplifies various parts of life, these small electronic devices can cause fatal collisions if a person chooses to use their device while driving. According to Distraction.Gov, nearly 660,000 individuals use their cellphones while driving, creating serious risks for other persons sharing the road.
When another individual becomes the victim of a distracted driving crash, they may be able to file a lawsuit against the responsible driver. Because these types of cases can be extremely complicated, it is wise for the injured person to seek legal representation following an accident caused by a distracted driver.
