Protecting Your Rights After Distracted Driving Accidents
Distracted driving is a leading cause of car accidents nationwide. While distractions may take many forms, cellphone use is widespread and extremely unsafe.
In Illinois, texting while driving is illegal, and any cellphone use while driving must be through a hands-free device. Unfortunately, drivers ignore the law all too often, placing their own lives and those of others at risk.
Cellphone accidents and other types of distracted driving accidents warrant a thorough and prepared approach. At Kujawski & Associates LLC, our attorneys will help you with your personal injury claim every step of the way.
