The proliferation of smartphone use has changed the way our society communicates and behaves. Mobile devices have also changed the way in which people drive, sometimes for the worse.
Sometimes it seems like everyone is looking down at their phones, distracted with text messages, social media posts, email and other activities. When drivers feed their obsession with these mobile activities behind the wheel, bad things happen. People get hurt and killed.
In Connecticut, handheld use of a mobile device while driving is forbidden. Law enforcement is working hard to stop distracted driving, but the problem persists. Many accidents are caused by the negligence of drivers whose eyes are on their phones, not on the road. If you or a member of your family was injured by a distracted driver, you deserve answers, and you may be entitled to compensation.
