Will County Distracted Driver Accidents Lawyers

Attorneys for Motor Vehicle Injuries in Illinois

With the advent of cell phone usage, distracted driving has become an increasingly common cause of motor vehicle accidents. When drivers fail to keep their eyes on the road, the results can be disastrous. Even with laws limiting the use of cell phones while driving, this remains a persistent problem on Illinois roads and highways. At the Law Offices of Tedone & Morton, P.C., we are experienced in handling car and truck accident cases involving distracted driving. We are committed to obtaining maximum compensation for our clients' injuries and holding at-fault parties responsible for their negligence.

Texting and Cell Phone Usage While Driving

The statistics regarding texting and cell phone usage while driving are clear. You are four times more likely to have an accident while talking on the phone and 23 times more likely to have an accident while texting. Despite all the warnings not to use a cell phone while driving, many people still make this dangerous choice often resulting in catastrophic injuries and wrongful death. These types of accidents are 100% preventable, and we fight aggressively to ensure our clients receive the greatest possible compensation in these cases.

Other Forms of Distracted Driving

In addition to talking and texting on cell phones, there are numerous other ways driver distraction can contribute to an accident including:

  • Adjusting stereo controls
  • Adjusting navigation controls
  • Adjusting climate controls
  • Eating or drinking
  • Reaching to retrieve items from other parts of the car
  • Interacting with children in the car
  • Putting on makeup
  • Listening to books on tape

Anything that takes a driver's attention from the road is considered distracted driving and can prove liability for the accident.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car or truck accident and you believe distracted driving to be a contributing factor, contact us to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case. We work with clients in Plainfield, Joliet and throughout Will County, Grundy County, Kendall County, Kankakee County and beyond
