Making Cellphone Users Responsible For Accidents They Cause
Cellphones have ceased to be a secondary phone line and for many are now their only means of communication. Because of this, cellphones go with us everywhere and can distract us at any time. Receiving a phone call while driving used to be a rarity but now is commonplace. Many cars and trucks have built in systems that allow us to answer and talk.
Regardless of whether a driver uses a hands-free device or holds the phone, the risk of being in an accident increases by at least three times when driving with this distraction. If you have been seriously injured by a driver who was talking on a cellphone, you need a Houston lawyer experienced in handling cellphone accidents.
