Was Your Car Or Truck Accident Caused By A Distracted Driver?

A Law Firm That Holds Drivers Accountable
Texting or dialing a cellphone while driving is a dangerous activity. In fact, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has found that drivers who use hand-held devices are four times more likely to be involved in a crash serious enough to cause an injury than drivers who do not use a hand-held device. These types of auto accidents may lead to catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injury and severe spinal injuries.
If you have lost a loved one in an accident caused by a distracted driver, we can help you file a wrongful death claim in court. We understand that no amount of compensation can make up for your loss. However, we can send a message that this type of irresponsible behavior will not be tolerated. In every case, we will provide compassionate service and aggressive representation.
North Carolina Cellphone Use Laws For Truck Drivers
In North Carolina, it is illegal for anyone to use a cellphone for texting, email or Internet use while driving. While it is not illegal to talk on a hand-held cellphone while driving, it can still be a factor in determining liability if we can show that the truck driver was talking on a cellphone in the moments leading up to the crash.
Multitasking might be part of many jobs, but it has no place in the cab of a semi. When a truck driver fails to devote his or her full attention to the road, the result can be devastating for people in smaller vehicles.
Along with the driver logbook, truck maintenance records, drug test records and the driver’s past violations, our truck accident law firm often demands the driver’s cellphone records to determine if distracted driving played a role in the accident.
