Many who think they are good drivers are not. It’s not that they can’t drive well. It’s that often they are distracted.

It only takes a moment of distraction to miss something important and most distractions last far longer. Because of this, it is no surprise that distracted driving contributes to a many car crashes and accidents. Distracted drivers strike other cars, bicyclists, motorcyclists, and pedestrians.

Distraction can be visual distraction, physical distraction, and cognitive distraction. There is no question, smart phones are now the number one cause of distracted driving accidents. A driver using their phone while driving to check Facebook, social media, e-mails, or send and respond to text messages, is a distracted driver. The increase in the number of accidents caused by drivers on their phone has reached alarming levels. 

As you can see, the roads are full of distracted drivers who could leave you needing an experienced attorney to pursue your legal rights.
