Auto accidents caused by distracted drivers are among the most likely to result in serious or fatal injuries. Cellphone usage alone is responsible for thousands of car crashes and injuries in the United States every year.
Despite study after study showing the devastating consequences of distracted driving; despite many states implementing laws against cell phone use and texting while driving — many motorists are still doing it. Most people don‘t even give it a second thought; they are convinced that they will be unaffected by this behavior. Auto manufacturers will acknowledge the risks, but continue to develop more gadgets that lead to more distractions. When will it stop?
Contrary to the negative public perception of personal injury attorneys, many of those attorneys have placed themselves squarely on the front lines in the fight against distracted driving. They advocate for safer roads and they stand up for the rights of seriously injured victims, or family member who have lost loved ones because someone was driving while distracted.
