Distracted Driving Is Dangerous Driving

Distracted Driver Caused Serious Injury Albany LawyersThe facts are clear: distracted driving is dangerous driving. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, an estimated 424,000 injuries and 3,154 fatalities occurred in 2013 due to distracted driving.

Many drivers do not realize that distracted driving does not just mean using your cell phone. Injuries can occur from all forms of distracted driving and our firm is ready to represent those impacted by accidents stemming from:

  • Eating while driving
  • Listening to headphones while driving
  • Reading while driving
  • Applying makeup while driving
  • Distracted by other people in the car (such as kids in the backseat or a teenage driver with a car full of friends)
