Connecticut’s laws against cellphone use and texting while driving are among the most restrictive in the nation. Unfortunately, despite our laws, it is not unusual to see drivers using hand-held cellphones in New Haven and other Connecticut communities.

Illegal Cellphone Use In Connecticut
Connecticut laws prohibit the following:
Texting while driving
Use of a hand-held cellphone while driving (drivers age 18 and older can use hands-free devices)
Use of any mobile electronics by drivers under age 18
Use of cellphones by school bus drivers
Use of electronic games and DVD players by any drivers
Our lawyers take the time to investigate the causes of accidents and gather evidence necessary to establish liability. We often demand the other driver’s cellphone records to determine if he or she was using it to talk, text or surf the Internet at the time of the accident.
We handle all personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis, so you pay no fees to us unless we recover compensation for you. To schedule a free consultation with a Connecticut texting-while-driving accident attorney at our firm, call (203) 265-2035 or contact us by email.
