Holding Careless Drivers Accountable
Everyone has seen it at some point: the driver next to you balancing a sandwich, a smartphone, and a soda, all while attempting to change the radio. Driving no longer gets most people’s full attention, and this trend is catastrophically affecting thousands of families each year.
Common distractions drivers encounter while driving include:
- Eating and drinking
- Texting/cell phone use
- Deep or heated conversations
- Reaching for an object in the car
- Changing radio stations
- Observing a traffic accident, or “rubber-necking”
When these drivers make a mistake, many of them won’t want to admit they were doing something else that likely contributed to the accident. Having a team of attorneys on your side can help you find the evidence you need to make your claim.
The Consequences of Texting and Driving
Most people realize that texting while driving is a risky activity, but few people really understand how deadly the consequences can be. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), it takes at least 5 seconds to read a text. During that time, a driver traveling 55 mph will cover the length of a football field. Their reduced attention means a longer reaction time, which can be the difference between a crash and a near miss.
Why is texting so dangerous? In addition to the inherent visual distraction, texting also poses a risk for both manual (hands off the wheel) and cognitive (mind off the road) distraction. Because of a phone’s distracting power, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that over 391,000 people have been injured by a texting driver, or because of their own distractions on the road. With 10% of those injuries resulting in fatalities, texting and driving is a risk no one can afford.
