Hit By A Distracted Driver In Florida?
Cell phone use, even hands-free with a Bluetooth or other headset, can greatly increase the risk of being involved in a car or other motor vehicle accident. According to some studies, talking on a cell phone affects reaction time as much as a .08 blood alcohol content level. The more intense the conversation, the greater the risk of a crash.
Unfortunately, not everyone on the road understands the dangers of driving and cell phone use, leading to many serious accidents with distracted drivers. At the Miami law firm of Ferrer Shane, we understand how cell phone use and other distracting behaviors can lead to significant accidents and injuries to innocent drivers. Our lawyers provide experienced representation for victims of these accidents.
Contact our office at Ferrer Shane, PL, if you or someone you love has been harmed in a car accident caused by cell phone use or other driver negligence.
Miami Accidents Involving Cell Phones and Other Distractions
In addition to cell phones, many other distractions frequently lead to accidents, including:
- Other passengers in the car
- Food and drink
- The radio or other music
- Weather conditions
- Texting while driving
When someone is behind the wheel, it is imperative that he or she gives full attention to the road and other vehicles. Everyday distractions that may seem small can result in serious accidents that cause significant injuries and long-term damage.
