Distracted Driver Accidents and Injures Lawyer

The term “distracted driver” has become synonymous with drivers using cell phones, but this is not the only type of distracted driving. While cell phones are a significant distraction to drivers, any activity that takes the attention of a driver can be labeled as a distraction. When distracted driving causes an injury accident, the driver may be financially liable for the injuries they cause. The law firm of Dwayne L. Brown fights for the rights of victims injured by distracted drivers, seeking to obtain the compensation our clients deserve.

In 2016, the NHTSA estimates that 3,450 people lost their lives due to distracted driving. However, the real number is hard to calculate. It is not always evident what caused a driver to take their focus off the road. While cell phone use is easy to trace to the time of the accident, other distracted behaviors are harder to prove. However, an experienced personal injury attorney like Dwayne L. Brown can help find the evidence and often proves that distracted driving caused an accident. Once negligence is shown, the driver may be held liable for financial damages caused by their actions.

Types of Distracted Driving Accidents

If you are injured in an accident caused by another driver, the reason for the accident could be important in determining fault or negligence. If the driver was careless or distracted, this may impact the outcome of your claim. Distracted driving is considered negligence and is a behavior that should have been avoided. Some of the types of distracted driving actions that can help prove negligence include:

  • Eating/consuming beverages while driving
  • Looking for items in the glove box, purse or car compartments
  • Smoking
  • Talking to other passengers in the vehicle
  • Using electronic devices
