North Carolina has laws related to distracted driving. Texting is not allowed. Sixteen and seventeen year-old drivers are limited in the amount of passengers in their car and times they can drive. Regardless of the laws, the issue in a personal injury claim is negligence when using a cell phone for any reason. Talking on the phone may seem harmless, but focus goes away from the road and on to a conversation. In one split second, the smallest distraction could result in a serious motor vehicle accident.
At Downer, Walters & Mitchener, P.A., we also represent area residents injured in truck accidents caused by drivers distracted by not only cell phone use, but also work laptop computers. Taking shortcuts in logging information or surfing the Internet can have deadly consequences.
Take action now to hold distracted drivers accountable for injuring you or killing a loved one.
