Every day in the United States, 8 are killed and over 1,000 people are injured in crashes involving a distracted driver. Distracted driving greatly increases the chance of an accident and is, in many cases, illegal.
If you were injured by someone driving while distracted, a personal injury lawsuit can help you pay for medical bills, recover lost income due to your injuries, and compensate you for your pain and suffering.
Can I sue a distracted driver?
Yes. If you were injured in an accident involving a distracted driver, the fact that they were distracted increases the likelihood that they will be found at fault for the accident. Our investigators can help determine if the other driver was distracted before the accident and whether they should be held liable.
Even in states with no-fault insurance, personal injury protection insurance may not cover the costs of all of your medical bills or your lost wages. In situations where you or a loved one is seriously injured or killed, it is important to speak with a lawyer to discuss your options.
What is distracted driving?
Distracted driving is any activity that diverts attention away from driving. According to Distraction.gov, the U.S. federal government's distracted driving website, some of those activities include:
- Using a cellphone
- Watching a video
- Eating or drinking
- Grooming oneself, like applying makeup or brushing one's hair
- Using a GPS or other navigation system
- Adjusting the radio
- Talking to passengers
While any activity other than driving while driving can be a distraction, the government considers cell phone use to be one of the largest concerns. A 2013 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration study showed that 14% of crashes related to distracted driving involved the use of a cell phone.
