Cell Phones vs. Drunk Driving
A University of Utah study found that using a cell phone or texting while driving impairs drivers as much as having a blood alcohol content of .08, the legal limit. With facts like that in mind, lawmakers have made it illegal to use a cell phone while driving in New Mexico.
Distracted Driving Injuries
Accidents caused by talking and texting while driving include serious injuries such as broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, back injuries, neck injuries and spinal cord injuries that may result in temporary or permanent disability.
In order to have a successful case, you will need to prove that the other driver was texting while driving, talking on a cell phone or otherwise acting negligently before the accident. If you are able to prove that the other party was negligent, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, time spent off work, property damage and more.
