How Distracted Driving can cause an Auto Accident

Distracted drivers cause auto accidents every day in the US. Sources of distraction can lead to accidents because they require the following functions:

  • Manual – taking your hands away from driving
  • Visual – taking your eyes away from driving
  • Cognitive – taking your mind off the task of driving

There are many types of driver distraction, including:

  • Texting
  • Talking on a phone
  • Using an in-dash infotainment system
  • Adjusting the stereo or other controls
  • Eating or drinking
  • Getting into a heated, emotional or otherwise distracting conversation with a passenger
  • Staring at distracting things happening outside the window

If you were injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver, then you deserve maximum compensation for the ways the injury will affect your life. You may be unable to work, and are losing wages and income as a result. You may have mounting medical expenses and hospital bills, and could have difficulty supporting yourself and your dependents. Our lawyers will fight tirelessly to maximize the compensation you can recover.
