Jonesboro Cell Phone Car Accidents
For most people, carrying their cell phone everywhere they go has become a routine part of daily life. Cell phones not only allow us to stay constantly connected to the world around us, they also come with an array of features and applications that are useful in our everyday lives. With so many opportunities for distraction available in one easily-accessible device, there is a strong temptation for people to use their cell phones even when their attention should be focused elsewhere. Unfortunately, people often give in to this temptation while driving. If you are injured in a cell phone car accident, your injuries could result in substantial medical bills and leave you unable to work for an extended period of time.

The National Safety Council estimates that over 25% of all car accidents that occur in the United States are associated with texting while driving. Each year, nearly 1.6 million wrecks involve cell phone use. With all of the campaigns against texting while driving, many might assume that texting is the only issue. However, any manner of cell phone use while driving slows driver reaction times and increases the likelihood than a car wreck will occur. This is true whether the driver is texting, reading an article on their phone, playing a mobile game, or even just talking with someone else.
All drivers in Arkansas owe a duty to those around them to operate their vehicle in a manner that is reasonable under the circumstances. If a driver operates their vehicle in an unreasonable manner, such as driving while distracted by a cell phone, and causes an accident, those injured in the accident will likely have a legal claim for negligence against that driver. Proof of the other driver’s unreasonable actions will be essential to the claim, which is why it is important to contact an experienced car accident attorney in the Jonesboro area immediately after an accident occurs. Your attorney will be able to investigate the facts of the accident and obtain evidence from police reports, witness testimony, cell phone records, and other sources to support the negligence claim. Your attorney will also thoroughly analyze the case to ensure you are properly seeking compensation for all categories of damages to which you may be entitled. Without the assistance of an accident attorney who specializes in car accidents, injured victims run the risk of recovering less than they deserve, or perhaps nothing at all.Seek Guidance From Our Jonesboro Attorneys Today
