Under Maryland state law, drivers are not allowed to use handheld devices while driving. This law especially applies to cell phones, which are often used for texting and directions. Texting while driving poses a serious risk for you, your passengers and other drivers because when you are texting, you are not devoting your full attention to driving.
If you are injured in a car accident it may be a good idea to work with our firm to pursue compensation. For example, if you believe that texting might have contributed to your accident, whether or not the other party was engaged in that activity at the time of the crash may be tracked by using phone records after an accident. However, it may be very difficult to obtain these records without professional legal help.
Our firm may be able to help you pursue compensation by helping to gather information that might support your claim. In addition to seeking cellphone records, we are also familiar with some of the other technologies that might provide important evidence. For example, some apps are able to determine who was driving a vehicle and how fast that vehicle was traveling.
