In today’s fast-paced multi-task world, drivers are bombarded by many distractions, even during even a short trip. Between personal electronics, talking to passengers, or eating while driving, individuals can become a hazard to themselves, their passengers, and others on the road. Distracted driving is the phrase used when the operator of a motor vehicle loses his or her focus. When attention is averted from the act of driving — even for an instant — a driver can miss traffic signals, stopped traffic, pedestrians, or the actions of other cars. There are countless distractions, but some of the most common ones include:
Texting accidents occur when a distracted driver is paying more attention to a text on his or her mobile device than to the road. These accidents can range from minor rear-end accidents that result in whiplash to horrific car crashes that result in serious injury. Distracted driving is considered negligence and the driver can be held accountable for his or her actions.
You may not think your car crash was a big deal unless it resulted in catastrophic injury, but many injuries often produce long-term symptoms that can substantially degrade your quality of life.
