"Business Insurance" publication reports that "suits against companies whose employees were involved in vehicle accidents while using cell phones are raising employers' interest in distracted driving policies." After an accident, one of the plaintiff's attorney standard discovery actions will involve whether the defendant driver was using a cell phone or mobile device at the time of the accident.
