Here is a mind-blowing statistic for you: according to a recent study published by the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, cell phones cause more than 2,600 motor vehicle related deaths a year and over 330,000 injuries. According to one of the study’s authors, Professor David Strayer, a 20-year-old who uses a cell phone while driving will demonstrate reaction times as slow as those of a 70-year-old. Even drivers who use hands free headsets are not immune from the effects of distraction. They are as dangerous as drivers who are drunk or on drugs. A recent front page story in the New York Times reported that another study that found that truckers who text while driving are more than 20 times more likely to get into accidents than non-texting counterparts.
Driving while talking on the cell phone may be less taboo than driving while drunk. But statistics affirm that there’s little difference between driving while chatting on the cell phone and driving drunk. If you’ve been hurt in a car, truck, bike, or pedestrian accident, and the driver who hit you had been chatting on a cell phone or texting at the time, you may need the counsel of a veteran personal injury attorney to advise you about your rights and help you file a claim.
