Montlick & Associates, Atlanta Auto Accident Attorneys, Shares How Old Cell Phones Can Be Used to Make Emergency 911 Calls

Many people may not realize that an old, decommissioned smartphone can be used to make 911 emergency calls, as long as the phone's battery is charged. The Federal Communications Commission requires all cell phone service providers accept 911 calls from any wireless phone, even one that no longer has a phone number or service contract. The Atlanta Auto Accidents Attorneys at Montlick & Associates created the video above to explain how this works, and how keeping an emergency phone in your car's glove box could save your life in the event of an accident.

In Georgia, for example, a person injured by the carelessness of another has a right to compensation for pain and suffering, reimbursement for medical bills and lost wages incurred due to the accident, and in some cases, punitive damages.
