Distracted driving is a leading cause of car accidents, and cellphones are often the cause of the distraction. With the rise in the use of cellphones, and particularly smartphones, more and more drivers are talking and texting behind the wheel.

At Kanoski Bresney, we hold distracted drivers accountable for the accidents and injuries they cause. Our attorneys have more than 35 years of experience handling motor vehicle accident cases throughout Central Illinois.
