Can you remember the last time you left the house without your cell phone? Most people have a cell phone on them at all times, but using a cell phone or texting when driving is never a good idea. Your attention is diverted from the road and your reflex time for an emergency situation is greatly reduced. If you’re in an accident while using your phone, you could be held liable as a negligent driver.
On the other hand, if you’re working as a driver, sales person on the road, delivery person or any other job that requires driving, and you become injured due to someone else’s cell phone use, you may be entitled to workers compensation for your injuries and loss of wages.
Distracted driving is not safe, and if you are injured on the job as a result of another driver’s negligence, we want to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve. With cell phone use becoming normal for all segments of the population (not just teenagers or business people), the number of accidents resulting from cell phone use in cars is on the rise.
