Distracted driving has become an epidemic across the U.S. Many studies have even shown that distracted driving is just as dangerous as drunk driving. Using a cellphone in a vehicle, or being otherwise distracted, can result in a driver causing serious injuries or wrongful death.
If you are loved one has been involved in an accident that was caused by a distracted driver we can help. At The Law Offices of Carolina K. Tumminelli, PLLC, we have years of experience handling a wide variety of car accident and personal injury cases. Whether you suffered minor injuries or the loss of a loved one in a fatal accident, our firm can protect your rights and pursue the compensation that you deserve for the losses that have impacted your life.
Laws Prohibiting Use Of Cellphones By Drivers
Since we practice in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, our attorneys are familiar with the laws regarding texting while driving and the handheld use of cellphones in both states. Texting while driving is banned for all drivers in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Both states have also recently banned any use of a handheld cellphone while driving, though hands-free devices can still be used to dial and talk.
While our firm represents injured clients and not drivers accused of being distracted, the laws can be used to support our claim that the distracted driver was at fault for the accident.
Other In-Vehicle Distractions
People are often multitasking while they drive by eating, drinking, putting on makeup or even reading. Talking to other passengers can also be extremely distracting. Our firm handles all cases where a distracted driver caused injuries and property damage.
