Distracted Driving

There are many factors that can contribute to car accidents, including inclement weather, poor road conditions, or vehicle malfunctions. Unfortunately, driver error is also a major contributor to many accidents each year, and problems like overly aggressive driving or distracted driving can put the driver, passengers, and others on the road in danger.

Distracted driving can cause serious accidents that may result in injury or death to individuals involved. Injured parties may be eligible for compensation for pain, suffering, and medical expenses, especially if the accident was caused by a distracted driver.

Common Forms of Distracted Driving

Some examples of distracted driving include:

  • Talking on cell-phones or texting while driving
  • Applying make-up behind the wheel
  • Paying attention to stereo systems or in-car navigation systems
  • Interacting with passengers in the vehicle
  • Searching for items in the glove compartment or in-car storage spaces
  • Eating or drinking while driving

Drivers have a responsibility to their passengers and others on the road to operate their vehicle with a reasonable amount of care and concentration. Failure to do so may result in a serious injury accident that may be the fault of the distracted driver.
