Damien Orato Discusses Cellphone Records as Evidence in Lawsuits
02.13.18In an article published on February 13, 2018 in the Sun Sentinel, Damien Orato discusses cellphone records as evidence in lawsuits.
“Court-ordered examinations of phone records have become standard in civil court cases, particularly in cases involving motor vehicle accidents,” Orato explained. “Plaintiffs and insurance companies generally want to see time-stamped records of phone activities to determine whether a driver was distracted at the time of a crash.”
He cautions that parties involved in civil cases – both plaintiffs and defendants – should be aware that any incoming and outgoing phone numbers are not private if the information “is relevant in a given case.”
