When You Can Sue for Distracted Driving

    Although unlawful cell phone use does account for a significant portion of distracted driving accidents in Washington DC, sending a text or talking on the phone while driving is not the only type of negligent behavior that can cause a serious motor vehicle accident.

    Aside from cell phone use, other types of driver distraction and negligence include:

    • Talking to other passengers in the vehicle
    • Looking for directions / using a GPS system
    • Eating, drinking, or personal grooming
    • Adjusting the radio, volume, or temperature
    • Lighting up or putting out a cigarette
    • Trying to pick up an object on the floor

    Contact Simeone & Miller if you were a driver, bicyclist, or pedestrian who was hit by a distracted driver.

      The Laws on Cell Phone Use in Washington DC

      Each year, distracted driving causes around 3,000 deaths and 400,000 injuries in the United States. In order to minimize the impact of distracted driving accidents, several states have enacted laws regarding the use of cell phones while driving—including Washington DC.

      In Washington, DC the following actions are prohibited by law:

      • All drivers are prohibited from using handheld devices while driving
      • All drivers are prohibited from sending / reading text messages while driving
      • Bus drivers and novice drivers cannot use cell phones at all while driving

      Were you involved in an accident with a driver who was distracted by their cell phone? If so, you may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit. Texting while driving is against the law, and those who choose to break the law can, and should, be held accountable.
