Common Causes of Distracted Driving Accidents

Some prevalent factors contributing to distracted driving accidents include:

  • Mobile Devices: The use of smartphones for texting, calling, or browsing while driving is a leading cause of accidents. The allure of staying connected can tragically result in severe consequences on the road.
  • In-Car Distractions: Adjusting the radio or GPS or conversing with passengers can divert a driver's attention and lead to accidents.
  • Eating and Drinking: While activities like eating or drinking while driving may seem routine, they significantly increase the risk of accidents by distracting drivers from the road.
  • Daydreaming: Mental distractions, such as daydreaming or being preoccupied with personal thoughts, can impair a driver's ability to react to changing traffic conditions.
  • External Distractions: Scenery, events, or other occurrences outside the vehicle can draw a driver's attention away, contributing to accidents.

Common Injuries in Distracted Driving Accidents

Some common injuries associated with distracted driving accidents include:

  • Whiplash and Neck Injuries: Sudden stops or impacts can force the head to jerk forward and backward, resulting in whiplash and neck injuries.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): Head injuries, including concussions and more severe traumatic brain injuries, can occur when a distracted driver causes a collision.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: High-impact accidents may lead to spinal cord injuries, impacting a victim's mobility and overall quality of life.
  • Broken Bones and Fractures: The force of a collision can cause fractures and broken bones, requiring extensive medical treatment and recovery.
  • Psychological Trauma: The emotional toll of a distracted driving accident can lead to anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for victims.

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Distracted Driving Accident Claim?

The potential damages that could be recovered in a distracted driving accident claim include:

  • Medical Expenses: Compensation for present and future medical costs related to injuries sustained in the accident.
  • Lost Wages: Reimbursement for earnings lost because of the inability to work during the recovery period.
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the physical and emotional distress experienced because of the accident and injuries.
  • Property Damage: Coverage for restoring or replacing the damaged vehicle and other personal property.
  • Loss of Consortium: Damages awarded to compensate for the effect the injuries have on the victim's relationship with their spouse or family.
