Palatine IL Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer

Injury Attorney for Texting and Cell Phone Car Accidents in Barrington

Safe drivers keep their full attention on the road at all times. Unsafe drivers make a habit of letting distractions take their eyes off the road, hands off the wheel or attention away from what is going on around them. Momentary distractions can lead to rear-end collisions, rollovers and other types of serious motor vehicle accidents.

Victim Of Another Driver's Cellphone Use?

Cell phone use is an increasingly common culprit in distracted driving accidents. Not only can talking on the phone while driving pose a hazard, but smartphones now also allow drivers to easily send texts, check emails, or access Facebook, Twitter and other social media while driving. These activities create a doubly potent hazard by distracting the driver's attention, vision and manual control of the vehicle.

Illinois prohibits texting while driving, and any cellphone use behind the wheel must be through a hands-free device. Despite the law, many drivers still fail to comply. Young drivers are particularly susceptible to cellphone use while driving, which can be a dangerous combination given their relative inexperience. The statistics speak volumes: according to the National Safety Council, nearly 25 percent of car accidents each year involve cell phone use.
