These days, many people find it hard to put their smartphones down. With so many entertainment options at the tips of their fingers, people can be seen staring at their cellphones while they eat, during work meetings and, perhaps worst of all, while they drive.

By now, most of our readers in Connecticut know about the danger that distracted drivers present on the roadways. While most people probably won’t admit that they use their phones while driving, we have all seen drivers with their heads tipped slightly to one side, with one eye on their phones and one eye on the road. The problem is, that isn’t good enough – drivers need to focus their full attention on the road.

Although many states have enacted laws aimed at trying to prevent distracted driving, the truth is that this problem is seemingly only on the rise. Hundreds of thousands of car accidents occur in America every year and a large percentage are ultimately attributed to distracted drivers.

When a car accident is caused by a distracted driver, any injured victims may be able to recover financial compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. Distracted driving is a form of negligence, which can form the basis for a lawsuit. At our law firm, we work with injured victims in an attempt to hold negligent drivers accountable for their risky behavior.
