Cell Phone or Mobile Phone usage is covered and prohibited to some extent by Section 316.305, Florida Statutes. A driver in the State of Florida is permitted to talk on a mobile phone device; however, a driver is not permitted to manually type or enter multiple letters or keys into a wireless device OR drive while sending or reading data on a mobile phone or tablet device. Unfortunately, in a world consumed by instant information and multi-tasking, thousands of drivers violate the law every day and put other drivers, passengers, bicyclists, motorcyclists, and pedestrian in danger.
If a person is injured by a driver suspected of driving while texting or reading a mobile device, there may be a way to obtain the mobile phone records of usage and match it against the time of the crash and the negligent actions of the driver. It is difficult in many cases to match the usage with the exact time of the crash. Furthermore, there is just limited information on many mobile phone logs and ledgers as to the actual detailed use at the time of the crash. If a crash is caused by a driver suspected of using his or her mobile phone in an improper or unsafe manner while driving, it is certainly reasonable to check into the issues as part of the case or claim investigation. However, it should also be noted that the proof of mobile phone usage may not be necessary to establish a claim or case for negligent driving causing a crash and resulting personal injuries.
