Experienced Florida Cell Phone Car Accident Lawyer
According to a recent announcement by National Safety Council President Janet Froetscher, talking on a cell phone while driving is comparable to driving while drunk. Despite the known dangers of talking on cell phones and texting while driving, it is a very common occurrence. The distraction of mobile telecommunication devices is one of the fastest-growing causes of car accidents in the country. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver, Orlando cell phone car accident attorney James Cunningham may be able to help. In the past year, a few states and cities have banned the use of cell phones while driving for obvious reasons. Only California, New Jersey, Washington, Connecticut, New York and Utah have banned the use of handheld communication devices while driving, but other states are considering similar legislation. In spite of the growing body of evidence that talking and/or texting on a cell phone is dangerous, very few drivers extend other drivers the courtesy of pulling over to have a cell phone conversation.

Aggressive Orlando Texting Car Accident Lawyer Protecting the Rights of Victims
Reacting to calls from safety organizations, cell phone accident victims and victims’ advocates, Florida Senate Bill 172 was proposed to restrict the use of cell phones for talking and texting while driving. This proposed law was called “Heather’s Law” and was named after Heather Hurd who was killed en route to a wedding planner with her fiancé. The couple was sitting at a stop light when the driver of an 18-wheel truck crashed his rig into the back of their car, killing Heather instantly and severely injuring her fiancé. Investigations into the cell phone accident discovered that the truck driver was texting at the time of the accident. Sadly, Heather’s Law died in committee on May 2, 2009. Florida’s drivers are still at risk for being killed or injured by a distracted driver.
