Distracted Driving & Auto Accidents
Let our Fayetteville Car Accident Attorney Handle Your Case
When getting behind the wheel, it is important that a driver is completely focused on the road. There are many dangers that come with driving and even the slightest distraction can lead to serious injuries. With millions of accidents taking place every year, there are countless causes for why these collisions occur. One of the most common reasons is driver distraction. How does this occur?
- Texting and driving
- Talking on the phone
- Talking to passengers
- Taking eyes off the road
- Changing the radio
- Eating or drinking
- Applying makeup
While a driver may think that they are only taking their eyes from the road for a few seconds, they can travel a substantial distance in that time. When a driver is distracted they may not be able to react in the same manner that they normally would. This can lead to even more damaging accidents if they don't make an effort to avoid the situation. Car accidents are known for being extremely damaging and they are considered to be a leading cause of death in the country.
Negligent Drivers and Claims for Compensation
When an accident does occur and there is a driver at fault for being distracted and negligent, compensation may be owed. Passengers and driver in the other car, pedestrians and even passengers in the car where the driver was at fault may all have a right to seek compensation. This may be for medical expenses, property damage, lost income or pain and suffering.
