Cell Phones & Driving (Motor Vehicle Injuries)

When a person drives and talks on a cell phone (mobile phone) they are distracted. There's no question about it.

Cell phone usage, whether hands free or held, is the equivalent of driving drunk.

What To Do In Case Of An Accident

In our society, the use and misuse of automobiles & motorcycles account for the greatest number of actions in both criminal and civil courts.

Although the automobile has been the predominant form of personal transportation for the better part of a century, and despite the frequency of automobile accidents, many motorists still do not understand the responsibilities they incur, or the rights which they may seek to protect when they are involved in a motor vehicle accident.

Car Wrecks: If you're injured make sure you get an Accident Report (Lawyer)

Many times when an accident occurs you are not exactly thinking as rationally as you would like. If the other driver was at fault or you were a passenger in a car involved in an accident, then make sure the police are called to investigate the accident scene. The independent investigation of an officer at the scene provides a lot of evidentiary weight.

If you can, get a witness or someone to take photographs of the collision. This is helpful to the lawyer to demonstrate the nature of accident and magnitude of the collision, especially if your case has to go to trial.
