Smartphones have made staying constantly connected a possibility; yet, cellphone distraction on the road has led to a serious increase in distracted driving accidents. The probability of a driver checking their smartphone while driving and being involved in a car accident is 1 out of every 4 drivers.
Florida Statute 316.305 (3)(a) states: “A person may not operate a motor vehicle while manually typing or entering multiple letters, numbers, symbols, or other characters into a wireless communications device or while sending or reading data in such a device for the purpose of nonvoice interpersonal communication, including, but not limited to, communication methods known as texting, e-mailing, and instant messaging.”
Despite the dangers of using a cellphone while driving, the statute is still recognized as a “secondary law” as of 2014. Our firm does not consider your injuries as “secondary” and we are inclined to help make your case a priority if you have been in an accident due to a negligent driver.
