Injuries Caused By Distracted Drivers

Since 1979, the “Hometown Legal Team” at Downer, Walters & Mitchener, P.A., have represented clients suffering a wide range of injuries in car accidents. Over time, we have met with more clients involved in crashes due to distracted drivers. The advent of cellphones with texting capabilities and internet access has created hazards on North Carolina roads.

When you meet with us following a car accident, we show you the respect and appreciation you deserve. At our firm, you are a name, not a case number. Contact us at 704-594-4354 or toll free at 800-332-2486.

Contact Our North Carolina Cellphone-Related Car Accident Lawyers

North Carolina has laws related to distracted driving. Texting is not allowed. Sixteen- and 17-year-old drivers are limited in the number 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 cellphone for any reason. Talking on the phone may seem harmless, but focus goes away from the road and onto 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 cellphone 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.
