Distracted driving has been a subject of many recent news reports. All too often, innocent people are injured or killed by drivers who simply fail to drive with care and caution.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently released a report that illustrates how tragic distracted driving can be. According to the report, 16 percent of auto collisions that result in fatalities and 21 percent of all auto collisions that result in injures are caused by distracted driving. Examples of distracted driving include:
- Talking on a cellphone or texting while driving
- Using the stereo, GPS or other devices while driving
- Putting on makeup or doing hair while driving

Get Full Compensation For A Distracted Driving Claim
Proving negligence is the key to success in car crash claims. How do I prove that the driver who caused the accident was driving distracted?
I always take the necessary steps to get all the facts in the cases I handle. Sometimes, the negligent driver will admit that he or she was adjusting the car stereo just before the accident happened. In other cases, the truth may be revealed through witness statements that reveal that the negligent driver was talking on a cellphone just prior to the accident. My experience has also taught me how to dig deep and gather information such as cellphone records that may show that texts were sent or received at the time of the accident.
This is the work I have been doing for 20-plus years. I do not cut any corners, because I care about my clients. I want to make a positive impact on the lives of the people I represent. My experience is an advantage in complex personal injury litigation involving distracted drivers.
