Recovering Damages In Distracted Driving Cases
Just one second looking down at a mobile phone or grabbing something from the back seat of a vehicle can cause enough distraction to cause an auto accident. Our distracted driving lawyers at the legal practice of Ramey Law, P.C., understand how devastating an accident caused by the carelessness of another can be. If you have sustained serious injuries due to a preoccupied driver, we can develop a strategy to help you seek the maximum compensation for your injuries.
What Is Distracted Driving?
When one envisions an inattentive driver, one most likely thinks of someone texting and driving, but there are many diversions for today’s drivers. Distractions can be separated into three categories: physical, visual and mental.
- Physical distraction diverts a driver from looking at the windshield. Examples of this include eating while driving, drinking a beverage, using a GPS device, reaching into the glove compartment or retrieving an item from the back seat of the car.
- Visual distraction can be debris on the road, animals running out into the street, or unexpected scenic views or architectural sites when driving in an unknown city.
- Mental distractions such as grief from the death of a loved one, the unexpected loss of a job or a pending divorce can all cause emotional distractions during driving.
