Distracted Driving Accidents

Distracted driving is one of the most dangerous activities on roads and highways. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:

Distracted driving is a behavior dangerous to drivers, passengers and nonoccupants alike. Distraction is a specific type of inattention that occurs when drivers divert their attention from the driving task to focus on some other activity. A distraction-affected crash is any crash in which a driver was identified as distracted at the time of the crash.*

According to data, approximately one in 10 accidents occurs as a result of distracted driving.*

Even if it seems obvious that another driver was negligent in a car accident, do not assume that collecting a settlement or obtaining a verdict at trial will be straightforward. An experienced attorney on your side can ensure that your interests are protected at every step of your claim.
