Dangers of Hands-Free Devices
Many distracted driving accidents are not caused by people who are handling a smartphone, instead, drivers who are using hands-free applications and devices are often at the root of a distracted driving accident. Despite what commercials might advertise, hands-free devices do not make it easier to drive without distraction. Safety groups like the National Safety Council (NSC) have consistently noted that drivers who use a hands-free cellular device are just as distracted as those who use their phones manually. There’s no safe way to use a smartphone while driving.
Delaware Distracted Driving Law
Although hands-free devices are dangerous, Delaware has not outlawed their use when driving. The state has only made it unlawful to use a distracting electronic device that is hand-held or requires at least one hand to operate.
Drivers in Delaware may not use:
- Electronic gaming devices
A driver can be fined up to $100 for the first offense if they are pulled over for driving while distracted by a handheld device. If the police determine that a driver who hit you was using a handheld device, then our attorneys will get a copy of the police report and use it to your advantage in pursuing your personal injury claim.
How Do You Get Money from a Distracted Driving Accident Claim?
In order to gain compensation from a distracted driver who was responsible for your accident, you will need to bring a legal action against them. Very few drivers will admit fault or instruct their insurance companies to assign them 100% liable for the accident, even when they know for certain that their distraction caused the crash.
