The more technologically advanced our world becomes, the more productivity people try to cram into each day. Unfortunately, the practice has extended into our vehicles where people are constantly making phone calls, texting and sending e-mails. Drivers engage in many other distracting activities behind the wheel that takes their attention off the road, including eating, putting on make-up, reading the newspaper and attending to children, just to name a few.
Despite city and state ordinances against cell phone use and other distracting behaviors, thoughtless drivers cannot or will not break themselves of these habits that put other drivers at risk. When these drivers cause accidents that result in serious injury, they can and should be held accountable for the harm they cause. If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by a distracted driver, contact a reputable personal injury lawyer to review your case.
