One of Chicago’s Top Car Accident Lawyers, Paul Greenberg Crusades against Distracted Driving

Mar 18, 2024

Chicago, Illinois – In an ongoing effort to address the growing issue of distracted driving, particularly texting while driving, renowned car accident and injury lawyer, Paul Greenberg of Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, is spearheading an awareness campaign aimed at reducing fatal car accidents in Illinois.

Paul Greenberg has championed several efforts over the years to combat the rise in fatal car accidents in Illinois which have remained at elevated levels since the pandemic. Last month, he shared dire statistics with and encouraged Illinois drivers to exercise caution.

Shocking statistics indicate that an alarming 19% of all fatal distracted driving incidents report at least one driver using a cell phone. This grim reality presents a significant problem that threatens the welfare of all Illinois motorists as well as pedestrians who can easily be struck by a driver distracted by their phone. Recognizing this, Greenberg has made it the mission of Briskman Briskman & Greenberg to shed light on the seriousness of this issue, advocating for safer driving practices.

“Distracted driving, especially texting and driving, is not only illegal in Illinois, it’s dangerously negligent,” said Greenberg. “We have seen first-hand the life-altering injuries and tragic losses that result from these preventable accidents. Our goal is to ensure people understand the gravity of their actions behind the wheel.”

Greenberg, through his firm, Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, has a long-standing reputation for fighting tirelessly for those who have been unjustly injured in car accidents. This campaign is a natural extension of his dedication to the safety of the Illinois community.

Greenberg urges the public to acknowledge the inherent dangers of distracted driving, “Every time you decide to text and drive, you’re putting your life and the lives of others at risk,” stated Greenberg. “It’s a split-second choice with potentially fatal consequences.”

In 2023, the Illinois Highway Patrol issued over 10,000 citations to drivers using their phones. In Illinois, the use of a cell phone while driving is illegal unless the device is in hands-free mode.

“Distracted driving fatalities are completely preventable,” Greenberg asserted. “Let’s make our roads safer by making a conscious decision to focus on the road rather than our phones.”
