With the help of a highly experienced car accident attorney with an established track record in recovering full and fair compensation for clients in Minnesota and Nebraska, you will be treated the way that you deserve to be treated.

Seeking Justice For You

There are many ways that a wireless phone can distract a driver. Some of the common activities that drivers engage in while driving and having a cell phone in-hand include:

  • Talking to friends and family on the phone while driving and not paying attention to traffic
  • Texting via text or messaging programs or even engaging in social media while driving
  • Reviewing maps
  • Posting photos that were just taken of traffic, accidents, traffic jams, and other scenery
  • Reading the news
  • Responding to work-related texts or phone calls that are time-sensitive
  • Searching for locations, such as restaurants
  • Entering information into a GPS program on the mobile phone

Some individuals have even been in serious accidents for taking selfies of themselves driving, which means they have to take their eyes off the road for a few seconds. A few seconds is all it takes to get into a serious accident.
