Mobile devices, such as cellphones, have become an extreme distraction for drivers. Although there are laws and ongoing public awareness campaigns to counter the dangers of distracted driving, many drivers prefer to text or use their mobile smartphones or any other devices when driving. It’s only a matter of time, if using a mobile phone to let a hand go off the steering wheel, or take your eyes away from the road. In that instant the car in front of the driver may apply their brakes or a pedestrian may attempt to cross the street. If a person is distracted by texting or using their cell phone, and this results in an accident that causes injury, the person could be held accountable for any damages.
