Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of all automobile accidents. In the United States, 1 in 5 crashes in which one or more people are injured result from a distraction. Such accidents can and should be avoided, so if you or a loved one has been injured in such a crash, you deserve compensation.

If you’ve been injured by someone who wasn’t paying attention to the road, you deserve justice. Contact us today to learn how we can help.

The Dangers of Distracted Driving

In South Carolina, texting while driving is prohibited. However, cell phone use by a person operating a moving vehicle remains legal, so people can make calls or use their smart phone’s GPS while driving all they want. Yet, these activities can be just as dangerous as texting. In fact, driving while using a cell phone in any way reduces brain activity associated with driving by 37%.

The three types of distractions that may occur while driving are:

  • Visual distractions
  • Manual distractions
  • Cognitive distractions

Visual distractions include looking at one’s cell phone, the scenery, or another passenger instead of the road. This is the most common type of distracted driving. Manual distractions encompass taking one’s hands of the steering wheel to do something else, such as eat food or change the radio volume. Cognitive distractions arise when the driver has trouble concentrating, perhaps because they are in a bad mood or are driving down an empty road. Cell phones are the most dangerous item to use while operating a vehicle because they combine all three forms of distraction.

Though it is human nature to get distracted at times, distraction is no excuse for causing an accident that endangered others. If you or a loved one was involved in a car crash because the at-fault driver was distracted, we can help you receive compensation for your injuries and other troubles beyond what the insurance company may offer.
