Distracted Driving Accidents

Laws Banning Texting While Driving

Wisconsin has enacted a law that bans text messaging while driving. However, this law only applies to the writing and sending of messages, not the reading of texts or using the Internet. But if you were injured by someone who was using a cellphone in any capacity, while he or she may have not been breaking the law, he or she still is responsible for the accident that left you injured.

Teenage Drivers

It is important to note that it is illegal for all teenage drivers to use a cellphone in any capacity while behind the wheel of a car. If you were injured by a teenage driver who was using a cellphone, he or she is liable for your injuries, as his or her illegal activity directly contributed to the accident.

Other Distractions

In-vehicle distractions have always existed for drivers, well before the invention and proliferation of cellphones. We represent clients who have been injured by drivers who have been distracted by:

  • Other individuals in a vehicle
  • Eating while driving
  • Reading while driving
  • Applying makeup while driving
  • Pets in the vehicle
