With today’s technology, there are numerous sources of distraction all the time, even when you’re driving. Despite what certain laws allow and do not allow, distracted driving continues to be a cause of auto accidents.
Some of the most common sources of distracted driving are:
Talking on a mobile device
Using a GPS or in-dash infotainment system
Eating and drinking
Conversing with passengers
Distraction can be visual, manual, or cognitive. Anything that takes your eyes, hands, or mind away from the task of driving is a distraction. Driving past accidents on the roadway can even be so distracting that drivers cause another accident.
If you believe the car accident that injured you was caused by a distracted driver, then you may want to consider pursuing a lawsuit in addition to compensation from your insurance.
