It is against the law to text while driving in Michigan. Use of cellphones behind the wheel continues to be a rising cause of accidents and injuries on the road. Distracted driving can have a devastating impact on those who are hurt due to the poor decision-making of another driver.

Harris Altman PC, a Detroit-area personal injury firm, can assess your case and determine whether you have cause to hold the driver financially responsible.

What If The Accident Involved A Teen Driver?

Michigan has a graduated licensing system for teen drivers designed to help them build up their driving skills before receiving full privileges on the road. However, inexperienced and young drivers still make mistakes, like using a cellphone while driving, that can cause serious injuries and death.

Who is liable in auto accidents involving a teen driver? Most likely, the teen was driving the family car when the accident occurred, and then the liability falls to the parents.

Each accident is unique. Our firm has decades of experience — our lawyers will fully investigate the facts of an accident caused by texting while driving to maximize your compensation.
