Texting While Driving And Other Distracted Driving Accidents

Distracted driving is a problem of epidemic proportions. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that distractions and inattention contribute to 8 out of 10 accidents.

Cellphones are a common culprit when it comes to dangerous distractions. Many drivers keep their smartphones within arm's reach, and they may underestimate the risk involved in activities such as:

  • Talking on the phone
  • Dialing a phone number
  • Texting while driving
  • Adjusting the GPS
  • Using social media
  • Surfing the Web

Other distractions may involve eating or drinking while driving, adjusting the radio, tending to a spill or even grooming while driving.

Just because distracted driving is so prevalent does not mean it is always obvious. In fact, you may not even know that the other driver was distracted until after a thorough investigation. Or you may have been a passenger riding with a driver who was distracted. Either way, it is important to preserve your rights by involving a personal injury professional as soon as possible.
