    Safe Driving Guide – Why Mobiles Cause Accidents


    Did you know that one in four car accidents are caused by mobile phone use whilst driving? That’s around 1.3 million accidents in the UK each year. Of these, only 5% are caused by texting. Whilst it’s illegal to talk or text without using a hands-free kit, almost 10,000 drivers in the UK were caught holding a mobile phone whilst driving in the first quarter of 2014.

    So why do mobiles cause accidents?

    Sending a text message or reading one can cause distraction for up to five seconds – ample time for an accident to occur. A recent report by Direct Line & Brake showed that almost 45% of people surveyed admitted taking a call whilst driving. Drivers who are distracted at the wheel by performing another task such as texting or chatting on the phone are two to three times more at risk of crashing. Driving requires 100% concentration at all times.

    Have you been injured due to mobile phone use?

    If you have been injured through no fault of your own due to another driver using their mobile phone, you could claim personal injury compensation. Not only is driving whilst using your mobile phone extremely dangerous, it’s illegal in the UK, so the police will need to be informed if you are injured in a collision caused by a distracted driver. If you decide to make a claim for compensation, you’ll need the services of a personal injury lawyer – it’s best to choose a reputable lawyer that is accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers
