It is never acceptable to use your cellphone while driving. Yet 50% of drivers admit to having used their phone to call, text, or snap a picture behind the wheel. During an average rush hour, you could be at the mercy of half of your fellow drivers. And those are just the ones using the phone. Distracted driving includes anyone who takes their eyes, body, or mind off the road to focus on a different task. Risky behavior behind the wheel can include adjusting the stereo, cleaning up spilled coffee, or zoning out while driving. 

You may have suffered an injury or lost someone you love in a car accident and believe the accident was caused due to texting while driving or another distraction. If this is the case, then you could be eligible to make a claim and collect compensation.
