Injured in a Distracted Driving Accident? Protecting the Injured in Wisconsin & Minnesota

Distracted Driving Attorney

Distracted driving can be a combination of many things: texting, talking on a cell phone, eating, rummaging to find something in the glove box, emailing, or putting on make-up.

While all of us have probably done one of the above, we all know how important it is to stay focused and attentive while driving. Accidents happen way too fast and way too often.

Texting and Driving Statistics

According to The National Safety Council:

  • Cell phone use while driving leads to 1.6 million crashes each year.
  • Nearly 330,000 injuries occur each year from accidents caused by texting while driving.
  • 1 out of every 4 car accidents in the United States is a result of texting and driving.

Cell Phone Usage Laws in Wisconsin

For most Wisconsin drivers, it’s legal to talk on a cellphone and drive. However, recently-licensed motorists—those with an instructional permit or a probationary license—can use cellphones only for emergency purposes. And commercial drivers are generally prohibited from using cellphones unless they use hands-free devices. (Wis. Stat. Ann. § 346.89(4)(a), (4)(c)(2) (2016).)

Wisconsin drivers are required to use hands-free devices to talk on a cellphone when driving through areas where road construction, maintenance, or utility work is being done. (2015-2016 Wisc. Legis. Serv. Act 308 (2015 A.B. 198).)
