Charlotte Distracted Driving Attorney Helps Victims of Car Wrecks
Representing people injured by drivers using a cell phone
There have always been distractions that have shifted a driver’s focus off of the road. From food and makeup to newspapers and passengers, the concept of distracted driving is nothing new. In recent years, however, technological devices have found their way into the hands of drivers who should be paying full attention to their surroundings. The dangers of distracted driving are well-known. Drivers using cell phones are much more likely to crash and cause serious injuries to others on the road. If you have been hurt by a distracted driver, the Law Offices of Brian deBrun PLLC can help you get justice.
North Carolina laws are intended to prevent distracted driving
North Carolina has laws preventing the use of a cell phone to text or e-mail while driving. Current law prevents drivers under 18 years old and school bus drivers from using a cell phone while driving, except for emergencies. Texting (reading or sending a text message) and e-mailing are also prohibited by current law.
Helping those hurt by distracted drivers
According to the federal government, 3,154 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers in 2013. While North Carolina’s laws don’t totally ban cell phone use, drivers are still required to pay attention to the road. When their distraction causes an accident, they can be held responsible in a personal injury lawsuit. Experienced Charlotte auto accident attorney Brian deBrun helps accident victims and their families file personal injury and wrongful death claims against negligent drivers.
