In recent years, the danger of using a cellphone while driving has become more well known. Numerous studies have shown that cellphone use while driving is comparable to drunk driving in terms of the risk of accident that is created. In Connecticut, that risk has been answered by the passage of a law that prohibits cellphone use while driving unless a hands-free device is being used.

The level of distraction that is caused by talking or texting on a cellphone can be deadly. A question that many might ask is, "How do you know if the driver who caused an accident was on his or her cellphone?" In some cases, the victims of accidents see the other driver coming and actually witness the cellphone use. In others, responding police officers may see a cellphone in the open and question the other driver.

When necessary, our attorneys will perform diligent searches to determine if cellphone use was a cause of your accident. We may:

  • Search phone records
  • Speak with witnesses from the scene of the accident
  • Utilize investigators to pursue such information early on
