Put smartphones down to prevent accidents and save lives

There is no question that some Charlotte residents are dependent on their smartphones. Through these small handheld devices individuals can perform a wealth of tasks that once required them to use multiple different pieces of technology. They may make standard phone calls to their friends and family members, but they may also use picture calling for more personal experiences. They can send work emails, schedule meetings, make grocery lists, check traffic, get directions and even look up encyclopedic information all with the touch of a screen or the execution of voice controls.

Although having a smartphone can be incredibly handy for a North Carolina resident, it can also become a big distraction. This is especially true when a person is engaged in an important task like driving. Smartphone distractions are dangerous to motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians and others because they take individuals' eyes off of the roads and concentrate their focus on something other than operating their motor vehicles.

The law firm of Downer, Walters & Mitchener represents victims of motor vehicle accidents, including those who have suffered losses due to distracted driving accidents. Smartphones are only one of the types of things that can cause a driver to lose themselves in process of driving; eating, talking to passengers, looking for a dropped item or even taking care of personal grooming can all distract drivers long enough to cause accidents.

At our law firm, we meet with our clients to discuss possible strategies for pursuing their legal claims. Personal injury cases of this nature can be subject to limitations in terms of when claims may be filed, and readers are encouraged to seek timely counsel from knowledgeable attorneys before their potential claims are no longer viable.
