4,000 Americans Are Injured Each Year While Using Cellphones

According to a new Rutgers study, up to 4,000 Americans are injured each year while using cellphones. “So many of these injuries happen because people are distracted,” study co-author Boris Paskhover told UPI. “Maybe they were looking at their phones while they were driving or walking down the street. That’s how accidents happen.” The plastic surgeon added, “I’ve had patients come to see me saying they were walking down the street and looking at their phone and fell and broke their jaw.”
