Distracted driving is a leading cause of accidents in the Chicago area. If you or a loved one has been injured by someone who was texting or using a hand-held cell phone while driving, contact our attorneys for information about your rights.

All Illinois drivers are prohibited from using a cell phone to text, read e-mail or surf the Internet while driving. Use of a hand-held cell phone for any purpose is illegal in construction zones, in school zones, in the city of Chicago and by novice drivers anywhere in Illinois.
Following an accident, our law firm will undertake a thorough investigation into the cause of the accident. In many cases, this includes obtaining the cell phone records of the other driver. If our lawyers can prove that the other driver was using a cell phone at the time of the accident, he or she may incur significant liability. Even if the use of a cell phone was not illegal, it can still be a factor in determining liability. Jurors do not like it when distracted drivers injure innocent people.
Our lawyers represent pedestrians, bicyclists and others who are injured by people who text or use cell phones while driving. You may have a right to compensation even if you were a passenger in the car of the distracted driver.
There is never a charge to discuss your case with our texting accident attorneys in Chicago. Evening and weekend consultations are available. To speak to us, call 312-226-4236.

Mail, voicemail, and emails will be received. We thank you for your patience during this period of time.
