Atlanta Distracted-Driver Accidents Lawyers
Georgia Texting While Driving Accident Attorney — Fried & Bonder, LLC
A 2010 Georgia law known as the Caleb Sorohan Act makes texting while driving illegal for all Georgia drivers. The law also prohibits young drivers with provisional licenses from using a cell phone in any way while behind the wheel.
The public is becoming more and more aware of the dangers of texting while driving, due to safety studies and highly publicized distracted-driver accidents. The importance of cell phone use after a car accident is that cell phone use is recognized as a form of diminished capacity. Similar to the rights of victims of car accidents caused by drunk drivers, victims of distracted-driver accidents may have the right to seek punitive damages from the responsible driver.
