Rockford, IL Cell Phone Accidents: A Rising Concern

Did you know that cell phones are responsible for over 2,600 motor vehicle-related deaths and more than 330,000 injuries each year? The shocking statistics revealed in a recent study by the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society are eye-opening. It’s time to address the dangers of using these devices while driving and the devastating consequences they can bring.

In this article, we’ll explore the alarming impact of cell phone usage on road safety. We will also discuss the importance of seeking legal counsel if you’ve been involved in an accident caused by a distracted driver in Rockford, IL or the surrounding area.

The Dangers of Cell Phone Use While Driving

According to the study’s findings, using a cell phone while driving can severely impair reaction times, making a 20-year-old driver with a cell phone as slow as a 70-year-old. Even hands-free devices don’t eliminate the risks of distraction, as they can be just as dangerous as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Another study highlighted the alarming fact that truckers who text while driving are over 20 times more likely to be involved in accidents compared to non-texting counterparts.

Seeking Legal Counsel for Personal Injury Cases

Client Testimonials

I have known Mr. Brynteson for many years. I first met him in a social setting at a men's prayer group, then later had the privilege to use him professionally on several occasions. Mr. Brynteson has set up two non-profit corporations that I am a part of in record time. His competence, speed of action and knowledge in the area was astounding! I believe that Mr. Brynteson has the integrity that he would not take on any case in which he feels he could not do an exceptional job for his client. I certainly could recommend this gentlemen and am privileged to publicly give him a 5 star rating.

When I finally called Mark Brynteson after being mired in a nasty situation for several months, Mark immediately took charge and directed every reponse on my part. He explained the problems clearly from a legal standpoint and also provided options when they were available. One day when I was quite sick and flat on my back, Mark called to follow up on a problem. When he finished, he said, "Today I'm not on the clock". Under the circumstances, that consideration was highly appreciated.
