Cell phones have been around for a little more than a decade. They have become widely accessible recently now more than ever. Cell phones are great devices that allow us to stay connected, avoid talking to people by playing games or listening to music and help resolve those pesky questions that you swear you knew but now you can just Google. Cell phones help us navigate spaces to find out where we are and where new places are. More and more teens and children are given these devices so that parents and family members can keep track of where their young ones are. Cell phones are a blessing, but they can also be a curse.

Cell phones are the second largest reason for car accidents. The first reason is people who are lost in thought. Distracted driving is dangerous because it puts the driver and everyone else on the road in danger. When you aren’t paying attention to the road then you are more likely to cause some severe damage to yourself or other people. 25% of fatal accidents are due to distracted driving. Even though California has rules and regulations for a hands-free cell phone zone in your car, there are people who do not follow those rules and regulations. When people don’t follow those rules they are showing complete disregard for anyone else. Their actions could lead to the result of your injuries.

Common Car Accident Injuries

If you or a loved one has been in a car accident then there is a likely chance that you or they are suffering from common car accident injuries. These injuries are whiplash, broken bones, scrapes and cuts, bruises, head injuries, back injuries, and physical and emotional trauma. Car accidents lead to personal injuries which is why you need a personal injury lawyer to help you file a civil suit to get the compensation you deserve for the injuries that you suffered.

Car insurance companies are businesses. They are in the business of making money off of your likelihood of being healthy or, for car insurance, that you are driving safely. Car insurance companies do not have a set sheet that states what people should receive depending on their ailments. Instead, they are all about negotiations. If you were hit by someone then you need a personal injury lawyer to stand by your side and negotiate hard for the compensation that you need and deserve.
