Cell Phone Accidents

A 2002 study conducted at Harvard University surmised that six percent of auto accidents are caused by drivers on cell phones. With cell phone applications expanding and the number of U.S. cell phone subscribers increasing annually (leaping from 94 million to 124 million between 2000-2002 alone), auto accidents caused by cell phone usage are on the rise. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports that the likelihood of getting into a car accident is four times higher when drivers are using their cell phones.

Even in states such as Florida where it is legal to drive while talking on a cell phone, it is still the responsibility of the driver to safely navigate his or her vehicle. As an auto accident victim, it is your right to pursue car accident litigation and prosecute wrongful parties to the fullest extent of the law.
