Common Types of Distractions
Distracted driving can take many forms, and each type poses a significant risk on the road. Common distractions include:
- Texting or talking on a cellphone
- Using in-car technologies, such as GPS or entertainment systems
- Eating or drinking
- Talking to passengers
- Grooming or applying makeup
- Reading, including maps or other materials
- Adjusting music or temperature controls
These distractions divert the driver's attention from the task at hand, impairing their ability to react quickly and safely to potential hazards on the road. It only takes a split second of distraction for a serious accident to occur.
As experienced distracted driving accident attorneys, we thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the accident to identify the specific distraction that contributed to the crash. This information plays a crucial role in building a compelling case and holding the negligent party accountable.
