Understanding Motor Vehicle Accidents Caused by Distracted Driving

Distracted driving can have severe and long-lasting consequences in the event of an accident. In less than a second, lives can be lost, your future can change significantly, and the people you love may be affected by your inability to work. To improve your understanding of motor vehicle accidents caused by distracted driving, connect with one of our attorneys.

Types of Distracted Driving

According to The National Safety Council, using a cell phone while driving leads to 1.6 million motor vehicle accidents each year. The chances of crashing dramatically decrease when your full attention is on the road. Operating the radio, texting on a cell phone, talking to other passengers, using a navigation device, drinking or eating, and even daydreaming are a few examples of distracted driving. Divided attention while driving can cause someone to run a stop sign, run off the road, rear-end a car, cause a head-on collision, or hit a pedestrian.

Distracted Driving Statistics

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that more than 1,000 people are injured daily in wrecks where at least one driver was distracted. The NHTSA also stated that one out of every four car accidents is caused by a distracted driver. To prevent distracted driving accidents, simply focus on what’s in front of you and pay attention to your surroundings at all times.
