Chicago Cell Phone Accident Attorney

Studies have shown that talking on the phone while driving is just as dangerous as drunk driving and texting while driving is 23 times more dangerous still. Unfortunately, while drunk driving is now taboo in general society, many people still think there is nothing wrong with talking or texting on the phone while driving. Statewide, texting while driving is illegal, but talking behind the wheel is still legally permissible. In Chicago though, both activities are against the law. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a cellphone-related car accident, please call a skilled Chicago accident attorney.

Like all other illegal driving activities, talking over the phone or texting while driving is considered to be reckless, not just negligent. This means that your lawsuit against the driver will be even stronger when you have evidence of their wrong doing. Additionally, your Chicago accident lawyer may be able to claim punitive damages on top of the other compensation you would ordinarily have received for the accident.

Even if the other driver claims he or she was not on the phone when the accident took place, your Chicago accident attorney can prove the truth by subpoenaing the driver’s phone records to show he or she was in fact talking or texting at the time of the crash.
