How To Use Mobile Phone Data In Car Accident Cases


Over 280 million smartphones are in use, and just under 2 million motor vehicle crashes per year involve injury in the United States. There is the potential use of cell phone data in almost every auto accident case. But unfortunately, when working on an auto accident case, litigators don’t know, under-utilize, or lose the digital evidence from cell phones that would support their matter.

The number of apps on cell phones continues to grow, as do the types of ESI (electronically stored information) that can be preserved and analyzed. Learn how to access and leverage cell phone data for car accident and injury cases.

Topics Include:

    • How mobile phone ESI can support car accident cases 
    • The types of data that are potentially available
    • Bad evidence types: Screenshots, self-collection, cell phone bills
    • How to preserve smartphone data before its too late
    • Pitfalls of obtaining cell phone records from the carrier
