Dangers of Using Your Cellphone While Driving

Everyone has heard at least one horror story about the danger of phone use and driving with today’s phone technology and the use of cell phones in everyday life. Most of these warnings exist about the specific risk of texting and driving, but that is not the only distraction that phones can present to drivers. Using a phone in any way while behind the wheel can distract anyone enough to cause an accident to occur. Many people fail to realize that being on their phone while operating a vehicle endangered not only their life but the lives of everyone around them as well.

If you were the victim of an accident caused by a driver distracted by their cell phone, you know how frustrating it is to know that your accident could have been avoided. These kinds of accidents result in physical injury, mental trauma, property damage, financial burden, or even worse. We all hope that people grasp the seriousness of distracted driving, and will stay alert when behind the wheel. When this is not the case, and you are injured as a result, contact a personal injury lawyer. Our attorneys at the Evans Moore, LLC understand the legal climate surrounding distracted driving and are devoted to getting clients the compensation they deserve.

Distracted Driving While on the Phone

Your cell phone is a powerful device that has many uses in your everyday life, but they should not be used while you are trying to drive. Besides texting, there are common things people tend to do while driving, that still pose a threat. These actions include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Scrolling through social media
  • Trying to take pictures
  • Looking at GPS navigation
  • Searching for music to play

Imagine that you are stopped at a red light, and you look in your rearview mirror to see a car coming up behind you, not seeming to slow down. You notice the driver is holding their phone in their hand, taking a picture of themselves instead of noticing you. As you are internally pleading for them to look up, they slam into the back of your car. This is a very aggravating circumstance made worse because it could have been avoided. If a similar situation happened to you, contact a personal injury attorney; justice can be served.
