Did you know that the National Safety Council has estimated that about25% of all car accidents involve drivers who are either texting or using their cell phones while driving? That adds up to over 1.2 million car and truck accidents a year.
Now here is the scary part for business owners… If your employees illegally use their cell phones driving while working for you – you can and likely will be sued for any damages that occur.
Distracted driver lawsuits are now increasingly common. Whether it is done in a company car, on a company issued phone or on an employee’s personal phone – if an employee has an accident while using a cell phone during hours in service to your company – your corporation will face serious legal and financial consequences.
