Distracted driving is the cause of thousands of auto accidents in New Jersey every year. One of the most common distractions is cellphone use and texting. While the state has taken steps to curb texting and talking while driving, it is still a major problem that jeopardizes the lives of drivers every day.

Our Hackensack distracted driver accident attorneys work tirelessly to hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions and to fight against insurance companies that refuse to treat injured people fairly. We take great pride in seeing our clients get the compensation they need and deserve.
Understanding Texting While Driving Laws in New Jersey
It has been illegal to text while driving on New Jersey roads since 2008. Talking on a hand-held device has been illegal since 2004. Drivers can be pulled over and issued citations for texting or cellphone use alone, even if the driver was not speeding, driving erratically or breaking any other laws.
How Our New Jersey Car Accident Lawyers Can Help
Our lawyers, with decades of experience, know where to go to find important evidence in any type of auto accident case. Such evidence can often be found in the other driver’s cellphone records. We will review the records to find out whether he or she was using the phone or might have sent or received a text just before the accident. If it turns out that texting or talking may have contributed to the crash, we then have an advantage when negotiating with the insurance company. If the insurer still refuses to offer fair compensation, we will not hesitate to take the issue to court to protect the rights of our client.
