Operating any smartphone app, or even making phone calls, is always dangerous when you're driving, but the messaging app Snapchat recently introduced a feature that actually encourages reckless behavior. Jones & Jones PC, Attorneys At Law, respected personal injury lawyers based in Andalusia, AL, urge anyone injured in an accident caused by this dangerous app to enlist the services of a skilled legal representative as soon as possible.
Snapchat is an app for Android smartphones and iPhones that allows users to send photo and video messages that automatically self-destruct when all intended users have viewed them. One recently introduced feature allows users to tag their video with their current speed, which some younger, more naive users may take as a challenge. High-speed accidents in several states have already been attributed to Snapchat users attempting to reach impressive speed benchmarks in their private videos.
Texting while driving is already considered by experts to be just as dangerous as getting behind the wheel drunk, and using Snapchat may be even riskier. Injuries caused by distracted drivers can have serious consequences that impact every area of your life for years to come.
