Cell Phone Car Accidents

Shoulder X-raySince cell phones have become a must-have personal communication tool, many studies have been conducted on how these devices affect our ability to operate all kinds of vehicles from motorcycles to 18-wheel tractor trailers. Every one of these studies confirmed what every driver already knows: talking or texting on cell phones while driving is dangerous, reckless and enhances the chances of causing and/or being involved in an auto accident significantly. These studies indicate that more than 81 percent of drivers acknowledge that this behavior is very risky and yet they continue to willfully put themselves and others at risk by talking and texting while driving. You don’t have to be a Florida cell phone accident attorney to know that using a cell phone while driving is negligent behavior.
