Car Accidents Related to Cell Phones
Cell phones are very common accessories for business people, families, students, and employees across all industries. Workers rely on cell phones to stay in touch with their employers while families use cell phones to stay in touch with each other. While mobile devices can be very handy in an accident and can be a great way to stay in touch with loved ones, they can be a true hazard on the road. According to research studies, distracted driving caused by cell phone use is a major cause of accidents across the country. Unfortunately, Florida does not have any laws in place that ban texting or talking while driving.
Even though in Florida it is not strictly illegal to text and drive or to talk on the cell phone while driving, if you are injured by a distracted driver who was talking on their cell phone instead of concentrating on the road, there are laws to protect you. You may qualify for compensation because drivers who drive distracted are considered to be reckless and negligent in their driving.
