Accidents and Injuries Due to Cell Phones or Texting

Careless and distracted driving are the main causes of injury vehicle accidents. Too often, the distraction is a cell phone, and the careless driver is paying more attention to their mobile device than their driving. When a person causes an injury car accident due to negligence by texting or using their cell phone, they may be liable to pay for the injuries they caused by the crash.

When a driver is using their cell phone while driving, they are likely to take their eyes off the road. This is especially true with texting or reading messages on their phone. Just reading an average text message takes approximately five seconds and is the equivalent to driving with your eyes closed the length of a football field when going 55 MPH. It only takes these crucial few seconds for a driver to rear-end another vehicle or hit a pedestrian, often causing serious injuries or even death.

Proving Distracted Driving in an Injury Auto Accident

The law firm of Dwayne L. Brown understands the pain and suffering that can be caused by a distracted driver. In a moment, your life can be changed forever. When a distracted driver causes an accident, their carelessness may result in serious injuries that can affect the victim’s ability to enjoy their life. The victim may have medical bills, time lost from work and many other expenses, as well as pain and loss of quality of life. We work diligently to prove that our clients injured by distracted drivers are owed fair compensation for their injuries, not just the minimum amounts offered by insurance companies.

According to the NHTSA, 3,450 people were killed in distracted driving accidents in 2016, and 391,000 were injured in similar accidents in 2015. This trend continues to occur, and those injured by these distracted drivers deserve to be compensated for their losses.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.

Attorney Brown resolved my case to my absolute satisfaction and did an excellent job. I highly recommend his services.
