    Claiming compensation for a mobile phone-related accident

    Claiming compensation for a mobile phone-related accident

    A mobile phone-related accident is one that can needlessly happen, and yet it is so easy to prevent. Unfortunately some people still use their phones while driving, even though it is illegal to do so. As soon as you start using a phone your attention is taken away from what you are doing – driving. This means there is a much higher chance of causing an accident.

    Some people have successfully claimed compensation for being involved in accidents that were caused by people using their mobiles at the wheel. However this is really the least of the driver’s worries. It is quite possible to be found guilty of dangerous driving in this situation, especially if your lack of attention causes a bad accident. Not only could this see you sent to prison, it could also result in having the injuries or even deaths of other people on your conscience.

    If you need to use your mobile you must pull over in a safe place, park the car and switch the engine off so you can use it safely. Doing anything other than this puts other people at risk aside from you. Make sure you are not one of those who cause accidents like these.

    Why is it dangerous to use a mobile phone while driving?

    Using a mobile phone while you are driving means you are not paying full attention to the road in front of you, or to what is happening around you. People think they can do more than one thing at a time, but if you’re making a call or replying to a text, you’re putting lives in danger – and not just yours but those of other people too. A mobile phone-related accident can be devastating – especially as it could so easily have been prevented.
