What can a smart phone tell you about an accident? We all know that Smartphone use distracts motorists from the job at hand- getting where they are going safely. The phone itself may hold wealth of other information. Examination of a Smartphone can reveal weather it was in use at the time of an automobile collision. This information can be useful to a personal injury attorney to show negligence on the part of the at fault driver. There is also a chance that if violating an anti-texting law causes a collision, punitive damages may be available to the injured party to punish the at fault driver.
Also a phone may help an injured person’s case by showing that they were stopped or the at fault driver was speeding. This testing is not common practice now, but may become so in the future.
