Too Few Realize The Danger Of Distracted Driving
Distracted driving has become a major cause of accidents on our highways. Too many people fail to realize the risk that using your cellphone while driving can pose. Texting, talking, Instagram, Snapchat and number of other apps are all competing for drivers’ attention on the road. The results are many being injured and killed.
The risk posed by cellphone use has been recognized by the government. Using a cellphone while you are behind the wheel is illegal in Georgia. The police conduct patrols focused exclusively on ticketing distracted drivers.
Subpoena Phone Records
When accidents are caused by distracted drivers, the first question is how do you know they were on the phone. We can subpoena phone records and easily identify whether or not the cellphone was in use immediately prior to the time of the accident.
When a distracted driver causes an accident, the injured parties can pursue additional damages meant to discourage others from similarly reckless behavior. Those additional damages can be a real benefit to injured people facing major medical bills and lost wages.
