From Texting To Eating Breakfast, Distracted Driving Takes Many Forms
As handheld and in-vehicle technology advances, drivers are finding more and more ways to get distracted while on the road. Whether searching for the perfect playlist or looking up directions, it is easy to lose focus on the road in front of you. If caught texting and driving in Virginia, Maryland or Washington, D.C., you may face a traffic ticket and a hefty fine. Even worse, a texter may cause a serious accident.
While anything can distract you while driving, it often includes:
- Changing music or radio stations
- Talking on the phone
- Texting, scrolling or using a mobile device
- Looking up directions
- Children in the back of the car
- Reaching for something
- Putting on makeup or brushing your hair
- Eating or drinking
Anytime your hands are off your steering wheel, or your eyes are no longer focused on the road, you are driving while distracted. We all know how easy it is to lose focus momentarily. However, if an accident occurs, the distracted driver should be held accountable for the injuries they caused.
If a distracted driver injures you, our attorneys will help you investigate your accident to determine what caused it and prove liability. Working with an experienced attorney can help ensure that you receive the full compensation you deserve.
