A distracted driving accident goes beyond the simple negligence of failing to notice that traffic has stopped or a light has changed. Before the accident happened, someone chose to talk on a cellphone, send a text message or “multitask” while driving a vehicle. This is the reason we have a civil justice system, to hold reckless people accountable when they injure innocent people.

New Jersey’s distracted driving laws are among the toughest in the nation. Drivers must use hands-free cellphones while driving, and are prohibited from use of video or texting while driving. Drivers with learner’s permits or under the age of 21 are prohibited from using hand-held or wireless cellphones, texting devices or any wireless electronic devices, including iPods.
Our NJ accident lawyers can obtain cellphone records to determine if the other driver was using a cellphone or texting in the moments before an accident. If the other driver was distracted, your case will become a lot stronger.
