Wheaton Cell Phone Accident Lawyer

Representing People Injured in Auto and Pedestrian Accidents

Smart phones can lead to stupid behavior in motorists. A driver who divides his or her attention between the road and a cell phone is putting other people at risk.

At the law firm Marquardt & Belmonte, P.C., we are seven former felony prosecutors who represent injured people in Wheaton, Naperville and other communities in the DuPage County area. Our lawyers hold drivers financially accountable when their negligence injures or kills innocent people. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Illinois Cell Phone and Driving Laws

Driving while using a cell phone is risky behavior. It may also be illegal.

  • Drivers 18 and younger cannot use cell phones while driving.
  • All drivers are prohibited from texting or accessing e-mail or the Internet while driving.
  • All drivers are prohibited from using cell phones in school speed zones and construction zones.
  • Drivers cannot use cell phones to take pictures on wireless devices within 500 feet of an emergency scene
  • In Chicago, drivers cannot use hand-held cell phones while driving. Hands-free devices are legal for drivers over age 18.

Our attorneys can obtain cell phone records of the other driver when investigating auto accidents. Even if cell phone use was not illegal, it can still be a factor in determining liability for damages such as lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
