Illinois Texting & Driving Accident Lawyers

More than a Century of Collective Legal Experience

In Illinois, distracted driving is the leading cause of all car accidents and traffic fatalities. While “distracted driving” can be contributed to a multitude of behaviors and activities, the greatest threat to drivers and pedestrians nationwide is nothing more than our cell phones. As technology continues to advance, these little hubs of information and entertainment are intentionally providing consumers with innovative daily distractions and social conveniences. Unfortunately, and despite updated traffic laws and penalties, many drivers continue to text while driving.

In fact, texting drivers are responsible for over 70% of all distracted driving accidents. When a driver’s negligence is responsible for an accident, it often leads to severe injuries and property damage for all parties involved. Contact Sam C. Mitchell & Associates if you’ve been injured in an accident and want to hold the liable driver accountable. Our texting accident attorneys in Illinois can examine your case, evaluate your legal options, and assist you in filing an effective claim.

Cell Phone Laws in Illinois

Drivers in Illinois are prohibited from using their cell phones while driving—in certain circumstances, these laws even extend to hands-free devices. This is because lawmakers are aware that texting and updating a social media platform is a temptation many drivers have trouble resisting.

Texting drivers commonly injure:

It’s important for victims to seek medical attention after an accident. Not only does this reinforce a personal injury claim, it also ensures that their injuries don’t exacerbate because they failed to seek treatment. However, medical aid can be costly, and some injuries make it impossible for victims to perform their regular job duties.

To ease this financial strain, injured parties often seek legal advisement and file personal injury claims to recover their losses. When you retain our services, we can thoroughly investigate the accident, negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf, and even obtain the responsible driver’s cell phone records to prove their negligence and general liability.
