Safety after a serious car accident was one of the driving factors that popularized cellphones. No matter where you are or how bad the accident may be, you have the option of contacting emergency services right away. For parents of young drivers, knowing their child was carrying a phone was a source of comfort.
Nowadays, cellphones are often denigrated when it comes to car accidents. It is true that talking, reading or texting on your cellphone could result in a distracted driving crash. Your cellphone, used properly, could also be an important tool for your safety and recovery after a car crash.
