Seemingly innocuous behaviors often lead to devastating accidents

Distracted driving is a broad term that encompasses a wide variety of actions that alter or divert a driver’s attention away from the road. Any behavior that takes your attention away from driving can cause a car accident and negatively impact multiple lives forever. Some of the most common distracted driving behaviors include:

  • Texting
  • Talking on a cell phone or to passengers
  • Reading
  • Adjusting the radio or music streaming device
  • Using a navigation system
  • Eating
  • Putting on makeup
  • Reaching for something on the floor

 

In many cases, a distracted driver is focused on something besides the road and is unable to react to potential hazards properly. Some of the most common types of distracted driving accidents include:

  • Side-swipes
  • Rollovers
  • Collisions with pedestrians or bicyclists
  • Failure to stop for a red-light or stop sign
  • Rear-end collisions

 

Each accident is unique and requires in-depth investigation and examination to determine the contributing factors and allocate liability. We provide the legal resources and advice you need to understand your options and make the best decisions based on your specific case.
