Claiming compensation for a mobile phone road accident

There are many things you should never do while driving, and using a mobile phone is one of them. In some instances a mobile phone road accident has led to severe injuries for the driver or other people who were innocently caught up in what occurred.

The odds of having an accident rise considerably when you are using a mobile, because you cannot pay your full attention to what is happening on the road ahead.

No one should be driving unless their full and complete focus is on the road. This is why there have been various efforts by police forces and road safety organisations to highlight the dangers. Sometimes officers have monitored traffic and pulled over those people they see using mobiles.

There are many things to think about when driving and it is all too easy to become complacent. We think it won’t happen to us – that we wouldn’t have an accident while driving. However the statistics tell another story entirely. If you do not want to become one of those statistics, or to risk your life or those of other people, you should never use your mobile at the wheel.

Do mobile phones represent a real road risk?

Certainly – did you know the risk of having an accident becomes four-times higher when you are using a mobile phone? This is why police forces regularly establish check points on the roads so they can pull over anyone they see breaking the law in this way.

Many people think they are immune to the dangers, but nothing could be further from the truth. A split-second is all it takes to miss something happening in front of you, causing an accident in the process. You should never use a mobile phone while driving, no matter where you are.

Do you need no-obligation advice regarding an accident on the roads?

If you have had an accident and you believe another driver was using their mobile phone at the time, there could be cause to bring a no win, no fee* claim against them. With evidence that negligence was to blame for the crash, you have a potentially good chance of winning a case.
