What Can Be Considered As Distracted Driving?
When a driver causes an accident due to a distraction, they can be found at-fault and responsible for your car damage and medical bills. Distracted driving is defined as any activity that diverts attention from driving. The three main types of distractions are:
- Cognitive: Distractions that cause a driver’s mind to drift off such as road rage, being under the influence of drugs, talking on a hands-free device, deep thinking and listening to the radio.
- Visual: Distractions that cause a driver’s eyes to wander off the road such as texting while driving, sightseeing, doing makeup or inputting the address to a destination.
- Manual: Distractions that cause a driver to remove one or both hands from the steering wheel such as eating, drinking or smoking.
No matter which type of distraction caused the accident, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries. Consult with one of our legal team members today to identify your best options in seeking compensation.
