There have been an ever-increasing number of studies highlighting the dangers of using cell phones while driving. Talking on the phone while driving is bad enough, but texting can actually be far worse because drivers are forced to take their eyes off the road and the cars around them in order to type their message. This type of behavior is one of the most obvious forms of negligence there is on the roadways.
Many issues come to the forefront – issues that wouldn’t have otherwise existed – when you’re in a car accident with someone who’s either talking or texting on their cell phone. The first issue is evidence. How do you prove that the negligent driver was in fact using their cell phone while they were driving? Also, another issue is the fact that just because a driver was using their cell phone, doesn’t always translate into negligent behavior.
