Distracted Driver Accidents

When a driver is behind the wheel, their attention should be on safely controlling the vehicle. Unfortunately, too many drivers try to “multi-task” and take their attention off the road. Distracted driving is a major cause of accidents on roadways, with many resulting in serious injury or death to others. If a distracted driver caused an accident that resulted in a personal injury or the loss of a family member, you may be eligible to seek damages from that individual.

Distracted driving is a form of driver negligence. In today’s high-tech world, the most common form of distracted driving involves mobile devices. Cell phones, tablets and other communication devices used when driving can take attention away from the road. Just reading a text message can remove your eyes from the road for five seconds or more. This is equivalent to driving with your eyes closed, and at any moment, the car in front of you can stop or a child could run into the street. However, distracted driving can also occur when the driver is eating, drinking a beverage, conversing with others in the vehicle or doing any activity that takes their eyes off the road.

Proving Distracted Driving in a Personal Injury Claim

If another driver hits you while walking, on a bicycle or riding a motorcycle and causes an injury, it is usually their fault. If they have insurance, it will cover injuries and some expenses, but never expect more than a minimal payout. Insurance companies are in business to make money, not give it away. However, if you can prove the driver was negligent, as is the case with distracted driving, you may be able to file a personal injury claim to obtain a higher level of compensation for your injuries.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.

Attorney Brown resolved my case to my absolute satisfaction and did an excellent job. I highly recommend his services.
