Joliet Texting While Driving Accident Lawyers

For more than 30 years, we have been successfully helping accident victims obtain compensation.

Despite years of public safety campaigns on the hazards of texting and driving, distracted driving remains one of the leading causes of accidents. Data shows that using an electronic handheld device while driving is even more dangerous than drunk driving. Over 1.6 million accidents are caused every year by texting while driving in the United States.

If you or a loved one were injured in an accident caused by texting and driving, you might be able to bring a Joliet texting while driving lawsuit. When you want aggressive legal representation in your corner after an accident, contact the Joliet texting while driving accident lawyers at Briskman, Briskman & Greenberg. At Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, we do not think it is fair that you pay the price for someone else’s reckless decision to text and drive. Our dedicated team of car accident lawyers will work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.

When traveling at 55 mph, a car can go the entire length of a football field in five seconds.

Texting while driving changes lives in seconds

Sending or reading a quick text message takes a person’s eyes off the road for five seconds on average. That might not seem very long, but when traveling at 55 mph, a car can go the entire length of a football field in five seconds. A lot can happen in that time and distance.

Like most other states, Illinois law strictly prohibits handheld electronics while operating a motor vehicle, even at a stop sign or red light. Being pulled over for texting while driving will get a driver a hefty ticket for a moving violation and will show up on their record. Three violations within a year result in the loss of a driver’s license.

Should someone cause an accident that injures someone while texting and driving, they are subject to misdemeanor charges as well as having legal responsibility for damages awarded to the accident victim. If the accident causes a death, the charge becomes a felony. 

Distracted Driving Can Be Lethal

Americans Are Killed Every Day as a Result of Distracted Drivers

Distracted driving is one of the most common causes of car accidents. On average, eight people in the United States are killed in crashes caused by distracted driving every day, or almost 3,000 people annually.

Teen and young adult drivers are most vulnerable to distracted driving. Twenty-five percent of the distracted drivers in fatal accidents were aged 20 to 29, and drivers ages 15 to 19 are even more likely to be driving while distracted.

After an accident, contact an experienced attorney right away. They will gather and investigate evidence in the case, including cell phone records if it is suspected that the other driver was texting or otherwise using their phone when the crash occurred.

Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable

Negligent and reckless drivers deserve to be held accountable for their actions. When you or a loved one have been injured or killed in an accident caused by someone using a cell phone behind the wheel, you could be entitled to receive significant compensation. Potential damages include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Future care costs
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Lost earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death
  • Permanent disability or disfigurement

A driver who is found to have been using a cell phone when an accident occurred may also be subject to punitive damages. These are designed to punish the driver and discourage similar actions in the future.
