Distracted Driver Cause You Serious Injuries?

Driver TextingCompassionate Attorneys Fighting for Victims of Distracted Drivers

Distracted driving continues to be a serious problem in America. The proliferation of cell phone use, texting and other distractions is a contributing factor to many auto accidents. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 16 percent of all fatal auto crashes, and 21 percent of all auto crashes causing injury, are the result of distracted driving.

What causes distracted driving accidents?

While they are a variety of issues that are traced back to distracted driving accidents, the most common causes include:

  • Texting
  • Cell phone usage
  • Eating or drinking
  • Arguing with passengers
  • Grooming or applying makeup
  • Use of GPS and other electronic devices

If you or a loved one has been injured by a distracted driver, contact an experienced personal injury attorney at E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy.
