Is Distracted Driving Illegal in California?
Although technically, distracted driving is not against the law in California, a driver could commit a crime if he or she breaks the state’s cellphone use laws. It is illegal in California for any driver to use a handheld electronic device to make phone calls, send texts or for any other purpose. Distracted driving could also cause a driver to commit a moving violation or traffic infraction, such as running a red light or speeding.
If a driver causes a car accident while driving distracted, he or she could face criminal charges such as reckless driving, vehicular assault, or vehicular manslaughter. A driver does not have to break the law, however, to be civilly liable for an auto accident. As long as a victim has proof that the driver caused the crash through some act of negligence or recklessness – such as distracted driving – the victim could receive compensation for his or her damages.
What Is Your Case Worth?
Distracted drivers often do not hit their brakes before colliding with vehicles, bicyclists, or pedestrians. They typically have delayed reaction times and impaired judgment because of their manual, visual and/or cognitive distractions. They may also be speeding or engaging in other reckless driving behaviors. These factors can lead to catastrophic and deadly auto accidents in Los Angeles.
If you suffered life-changing injuries such as broken bones, spine injury, or traumatic brain damage, you could be eligible for significant compensation in California. A wrongful death claim could also lead to a high-value award for survivors. The lawyers at Rose, Klein & Marias LLP know how to argue for top compensation from insurance companies in LA. We may be able to obtain fair and full restitution for your economic and noneconomic damages.
Our personal injury law firm has obtained over $5 billion collectively for all our clients since our firm’s establishment. While we cannot guarantee results, we can promise to treat your case as if it were our only case. We will work hard to establish your eligibility for maximum compensation, hiring investigators and crash experts to help prove your case if necessary.
