Ilchert, Esq., a partner at the law firm of Lurie, Ilchert, Mac Donnell and Ryan, LLP (, a Manhattan accident law firm known for its experience in fighting for the rights of personal injury victims, there has been an increased number of accidents resulting from drivers distracted by operating a motor vehicle while texting on their mobile device.

“We are seeing a spike in the number of automobile accidents that result when someone is texting while driving,” says Ilchert. “The most recent case to make the news was in New Jersey when a 28-year-old driver struck and killed a 42-year-old bicyclist.”
