Los Angeles Auto Accidents and Cell PhonesIf you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident that involved cell phone use, we are ready to fight for your rights. Distracted driving is a negligent act that may result in serious injury or even death. At our Los Angeles law firm, the Law Offices of Edward Deason, we feel passionate about putting a stop to auto accidents that occur as a result of drivers actively using cell phones, either through phone calls, texts, or accessing the Internet. You may be eligible to receive compensation for your damages and injuries, and we are ready to provide you with the aggressive legal representation you need.

Auto Accidents Resulting from Cell Phone Use

Unless a phone is used hands-free for listening and talking only, the state of California has banned using a cell phone while driving. An individual operating a motor vehicle who is distracted while texting, talking on the phone, checking maps, or other phone-based activities, is acting negligently. This is a crime, and may result in serious injury or death when it results in an auto accident. If you have suffered injuries, you may be eligible for compensation. Do not simply assume you are responsible for covering medical bills and other costs. For a clearer understanding of this practice area, look over the following additional examples of “distracted driving”:

  • Eating or drinking
  • Reading
  • Speaking to a passenger
  • Reaching for an item in the car
