Simple Distractions Quickly Turn Deadly

Distracted driving has always been a problem. However, the increase in the use of cellphones and smartphones has resulted in even more distractions for drivers. Even a seemingly minor distraction, such as changing the radio station or talking with a passenger, can take a driver’s attention off the road and cause a serious accident.

Some common distractions that cause accidents include:

  • Texting
  • Eating
  • Adjusting the music
  • Reading
  • Using a cellphone
  • Placing attention on passengers in the car

These irresponsible actions can have serious, and even deadly, consequences. Victims of distracted driving accidents are often angry to discover that their serious injuries and pain were caused by something so easily preventable. If you were injured by a distracted driver, you have the right to pursue compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Dealing with the Insurance Company

The primary source of compensation in distracted driving accidents is the distracted driver’s insurance company. It is never a good idea to negotiate with the insurance company on your own, since their primary goal is to save money. Accepting an offer without legal representation could leave you with less than is needed to cover your medical bills, lost income, and other damages. Let an experienced personal injury lawyer advocate on your behalf and negotiate an appropriate settlement to cover your damages.
