Any activity which could potentially divert a driver's focus away from
the road constitutes distracted driving. Distracted driving can quickly
lead to accidents that result in serious bodily harm and even death for
the driver, passengers, and bystanders.
Distracted driving is a form of negligence that injures more than 1,000
people in the U.S. every day. Activities that distract a driver's eyes,
hands, or mind can greatly increase the chances of an accident.
Common types of distractions include:
Using a cell phone or smartphone
Talking to passengers
Using a navigation system
Watching a video
Adjusting a radio, CD player, or MP3 player
Activities requiring visual, manual, and mental attention, such a text
messaging, are by far the most distracting and dangerous.
If an accident caused by another driver's negligence caused you harm, they
may be liable to pay you compensation for any injuries you have sustained.
