In an instant, everything changed for “Peter” (not a real person). One moment, he was driving home after working late, crossing a familiar intersection that intersected a busy country highway. The next moment, his world was filled with twisted metal and the ear-shattering sound of broken glass.
When he awoke, Peter was in the hospital, his arm and leg in a cast and his vision hazy and blurred. His wife sat by his side, crying softly and trying to tell him what had happened, but he barely heard her. He drifted in and out of consciousness.
When he regained his faculties, Peter’s wife – and a police officer – explained the details of the accident. A broken cell phone was recovered from the floor of the other driver’s car. While she claimed that it must have fallen out of her purse, a more likely explanation was that the phone had been in her hand when the accident occurred. An investigation would later reveal that the phone had been used to send and receive text messages within four minutes of the estimated time of the crash.
Peter’s state did have laws in place regarding cell phone usage while driving, but the other driver’s attorneys countered with the fact that a light rain had been falling when the accident occurred. That, combined with the darkness and the dark shade of Peter’s car, they claimed, were more responsible for the accident than any potential cell phone usage.
Peter underwent multiple operations to repair his broken body, but the severe concussion he suffered in the accident continued to plague him. He suffered from dizziness and lightheadedness and often had trouble focusing on difficult tasks. His performance at work suffered and the bills from his lengthy hospital stays – not to mention his continuing legal battle – wreaked havoc with his family’s finances.
