When it comes to car accidents, there are a number of factors that victims and their families may want to take into consideration. For example, if the driver responsible for an auto accident was intoxicated, uninsured or operating their vehicle recklessly, that could have an impact on the outcome of a case if victims decide to take legal action. In Atlanta, Fulton, and throughout the whole state of Georgia, a startling number of people have been killed and hurt in auto accidents and it is important for victims of these accidents to explore all of their options.

Whether or not the driver holds the phone seems to be irrelevant, as the numbers reflect the use of both handheld and hands-free devices.
