Did distracted driving cause your accident?

Distracted driving is a continuing problem in Florida and across the country, and this behavior is the cause of hundreds or thousands of accidents every year. The decision to use a phone or engage in distracting behaviors while behind the wheel is inexcusable, and these drivers are accountable for the injuries and harm caused to others.

If you believe that distracted driving was the cause of your accident, you have the right to seek a full recovery through a personal injury claim. It is important to take quick action to protect your rights by seeking the opinion of a legal professional regarding the validity of a potential civil claim.

Types of distraction common to drivers

Distracted driving comes in many different forms. The most common behaviors that lead to distracted driving include:

  • Talking on the phone
  • Eating or drinking
  • Putting on makeup or grooming
  • Talking with a passenger
  • Adjusting the radio or GPS system

Texting and driving is the most common type of distracted driving, and it is particularly dangerous because it involves visual, manual and cognitive distraction. Another concern is the current trend of using Snapchat and other social media applications while driving, which is particularly rampant among teen drivers.

In order to build a strong claim after a distracted driving accident, a thorough investigation is critical. An experienced attorney can evaluate the evidence that pertains to your case, such as phone records or witness accounts, and identify liable parties for your civil claim. You may be unsure if you have a case or uncertain of what caused your accident, but it is always beneficial to seek a case evaluation to better understand the options available to you.

Fighting for the full recovery you deserve

A car accident can change your life in an instant. Medical bills, lost wages from time off work and other accident-related expenses can quickly overwhelm your family and wipe out your savings. The aftermath of a serious auto collision is complicated and daunting, but you do not have to face it alone.

It is important to protect your interests after an accident. Insurance companies do not have your best interests in mind, but an experienced personal injury attorney does. Your legal ally can explain how to effectively navigate the complications ahead and secure the compensation you need to move on with your life after a distracted driving accident.
