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.

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:
- Other drivers
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.
