Your Cell Phone Can Help or Hurt your Accident Case

If you are injured in an auto accident that wasn’t your fault, and the other driver was using their cell phone at the time, evidence of that driver’s phone use can be used to hold them and their insurance company accountable for all damages. However, if you are the injured plaintiff in the case and the defendant is able to produces evidence that you were using your cell phone at the time of the accident, you could be held contributory to the accident and will not be awarded any compensation. Most states have laws in place that forbid cell phone use while in the car. Don’t risk being held partially liable in an accident- put the cell phone down while driving. If you’ve been injured in a Maryland car accident, call Portner & Shure today.
