Distracted Driving Accidents
You Should Not Have to Suffer for Their Distracted Driving – We Can Help
Cellphones have become an increasing distraction in vehicles for drivers. With everyone multitasking, talking, and texting, drivers are less focused on the road than ever. This increase in cellphone usage has also led to an increase in accidents caused by these distracted drivers.

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 they may have not been breaking the law, they still are responsible for the accident that left you injured.
Teenage Drivers and Cellphones
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.
