Cellphone-Related Accident Lawyers Stamford
It can be argued that the act of texting is the most dangerous of all driving distractions. By using the Department of Transportation's own classification system, texting appears in all three categories:
- Visual distraction: People who are texting must look from the road to the screen of their phones to read messages. They must also look at the keyboard on the phone as they type a response message.
- Manual distraction: People who are texting must have at least one hand on their cellphones to select menu options, and type response messages.
- Cognitive distraction: The act of reading a text message and thinking about what kind of response is necessary distracts a driver's attention and focus from the act of driving.
Many states, including Connecticut, have embarked on anti-texting campaigns. In fact, the Connecticut General Assembly has passed a law prohibiting people from using hand-held cellphones while driving. Texting is dangerous and can lead to devastating property damage and catastrophic injuries. Do not hesitate to contact our firm to discuss your case during a free consultation.
