California Distracted Driving Laws

Distracted drivers have become a leading cause of accidents in Southern California. As a result, our state has passed laws banning most types of cellphone use while driving:

  • Drivers cannot use hand-held cellphones
  • Drivers cannot read or send text messages
  • Bus drivers and novice drivers cannot use any cellphones (hand-held or hands-free)

Our car accident lawyers can review cellphone records to determine if the other driver was using a cellphone in the moments before the accident. Even if the other driver was legally using a hands-free device, it can still be a factor in determining liability. Whenever drivers divide their attention between the road and an electronic device, they are putting other people at risk.

In addition to pedestrians and people in other vehicles, our attorneys represent passengers of distracted drivers who are injured. Our lawyers will aggressively pursue your case and seek maximum compensation for you.
