Hands Free For Auto Accident Prevention Atlanta, GA
car accident

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is an Atlanta leader in motor vehicle accident rehabilitation. We help patients who have been injured in an auto accident and other accident related injuries.

While we treat patients who have been injured in an auto accident, we’re also passionate about auto accident prevention as well. For this reason, we are thrilled about the new Hands Free Law that went into effect on July 1, 2018. The law basically states that drivers can no longer hold cell phones while they drive. If you’re looking for detailed description of what the Act bans and allows, you can read about it here in a recent article in the AJC.

If you’re still struggling with trying to break the habit of holding your cellphone, here are a few tips.

  • Assign a designated texter while you’re driving. Hand your phone over to a passenger and have him work as a secretary, typing out the message you wish to send or reply to.
  • Place your phone out of reach so it’s not a temptation to reach for.
  • Get the technology to help you be hands free such as: Bluetooth, speakerphones, Alexa and headsets.
  • Plan your trip before you get started. Punch in the location on your GPS before you hit the road on your journey.
  • Set your phone to “auto answer” while you’re driving.

We hope the new Hands Free Law is effective in preventing motor vehicle accidents, but if you have the unfortunate event of being injured in a car accident, please contact the motor vehicle accident rehabilitation specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today to schedule a consultation with one of our expert physicians.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
