Pokémon Go – Being Safe on the Roadways!

It has been two weeks since Pokémon Go debuted and the popularity is continuing to soar. There are more and more groups of children and adults walking around neighborhoods just staring into their phones. What is Pokémon Go?  Pokémon Go is a virtual reality game that you play using your smartphone, wherein the game will use the phone’s GPS and cameras to catch these Pokémon creatures as one wanders the neighborhood. While this game is increasing in its popularity, the game certainly distracts users from their surroundings.

Because many are distracted and aren’t paying attention to what it going on around them, many accidents have started to occur. Just recently in Pittsburgh, a teen was hit on a highway while playing the Pokémon Go game.  Ten days ago when the game first came out, a man in Massachusetts caused a major pile up on an expressway after stopping in the middle of the highway to catch a Pokémon. These were just the first incidents to happen while people are playing Pokémon Go!  Since then many more individuals are getting injured in these car accidents because of distracted drivers and pedestrians. Most of the time after an accident, many individuals are injured and do not know where to seek appropriate legal help. In fact, many individuals simply accept what an insurance company offers to pay without understanding their rights and whether that offer is reasonable.
