Car crashes and other motor vehicle accidents caused by distracted driving are much too common throughout Southern California, and all of these collisions are preventable. When a serious distracted driving crash does occur, it is critical for anyone injured to gather evidence to prove distracted driving in order to obtain damages — from money to cover medical care and lost wages to compensation for pain and suffering. One important source of information in distracted driving crashes is cell phone data, which often can prove definitively that a motorist was texting at the precise moment of an accident.
However, as a recent article in The New York Times discusses, cell phone data is not retrieved nearly as often as it should be in the aftermath of collisions, and it is especially important that this changes given the increasing rate of distracted driving crashes.
