Is phone addiction causing serious injuries?

Posted by Bulldog Law | Feb 06, 2023 | 0 Comments

You often hear people talk about being addicted to their phone, and they may mention how they wish they spent less time on it or they're trying to cut back. There are even people who will download apps to keep them from using their phone so much.

But most people don't take this addiction all that seriously. It may be time to consider just how significant it is and the impact that it is having on society. This is especially true in the realm of road safety. 

Distracted driving car accidents

First and foremost, it's important to recognize that there are different levels of cellphone addiction. People will often use this term when they simply mean that they use their phone too much. But you can be clinically addicted to a phone so that it causes you to respond in different ways. For example, a driver, who is addicted to their phone may hear it buzz and feel a compulsion to check that text message that goes beyond simply wanting to know what it says. They almost feel like they cannot help themselves.

This is problematic because these instinctive reactions lead to a massive increase in distracted driving. People largely understand that distracted driving is dangerous and they know that things like texting and driving are legal. But addiction can cause them to take these actions anyway, and cellphones have certainly been designed to be addictive over the years.

Have you been injured? 

If you've been injured in a crash with a distracted driver, it's very important for you to understand all the legal options you have to seek financial compensation. This can help to cover medical bills and many other costs.
