Car Accidents Caused by Cell Phone Use and Distracted Driving

One of the most significant causes of Car Accidents in Massachusetts is Cell phone use and distracted driving. Cell phone use whether talking on the phone, using the phone as a GPS or manipulating a cell phone for the many other uses takes a drivers concentration off of the road. It could be that as part of the case we will have to prove that the driver was on their phone or manipulating it if there is not an admission to it or other proof.

Distracted driving is the top cause of car accidents, overtaking other common causes of car accidents.

Common Causes of Car Accidents

Distracted Driving – Eating, talking on the phone, texting, changing radio stations

Drunk Driving – Legal limit to drink and drive is a Blood Alcohol Content of 0.08% or lower

Aggressive Driving – In Massachusetts, drivers can be overly assertive, especially when running late

Speeding – A commonly broken traffic law that, combined with another factor could present a dangerous situation

Inexperienced Driving – In 2008, nine teenagers ages 16-19 were killed every day by fatal motor injuries

Weather Conditions – Heavy rain, fog, heavy snow, black ice, intense water pooling

If there is a dispute as to how the accident happened, evidence of cell phone use can be significant to show fault of the other driver.
