With communications technologies evolving at such an alarming rate, humans have never been more connected with one another as they are in this day and age, especially thanks to the invention of cell phones, smartphones and portable tablet devices. However, one of the most harmful side effects linked to the pervasiveness of cell phones is the frequency of serious auto accidents. As the population gradually becomes more distracted and sidetracked by continuous phone usage, especially while driving or walking around in public, accidents are bound to happen.
In Mesa, cell phone related accidents have become more prominent in recent years, and can be generally divided into two separate camps. The first involves distracted drivers, where the operator of a vehicle has caused a traffic accident by hitting another vehicle or a pedestrian due to becoming distracted by checking their cell phone for a text, playing music, looking at map directions online, taking a call, and so on. The second camp involves pedestrians who have been hit by a driver, where the pedestrian’s own inattentiveness was the root cause of the accident. In both sets of circumstances, a personal injury attorney may be called in to decipher who is to blame and whether legal action should be pursued on behalf of the victim.
Increasingly, pedestrian and traffic accidents in urbanized areas have been the result of distraction via a cell phone. All over Scottsdale, Glendale, Tempe, Gilbert, Fountain Hills, Chandler, Queen Creek, Peoria, and Mesa, cell phone accidents occur at a startling rate, resulting in everything from brain and spinal cord injuries to broken bones and fatalities.
