Common Causes of Distracted Driving Accidents

Distracted driving accidents can be attributed to various activities diverting a driver's attention from the road. Among the most prevalent causes are:

  • Texting and Phone Usage: The ubiquitous use of smartphones has unfortunately led to an increase in accidents caused by drivers who text or talk on the phone while operating a vehicle.
  • Multitasking: Drivers often attempt to multitask behind the wheel, such as eating, grooming, or adjusting in-car entertainment systems, diverting their attention from the road.
  • Navigation Systems: While GPS navigation systems are invaluable, adjusting settings or inputting destinations while driving can lead to hazardous situations.
  • Daydreaming: Mental distractions can be as dangerous as physical ones. Daydreaming or being preoccupied with thoughts unrelated to driving can impair a driver's ability to react quickly to changing road conditions.
  • Passenger Distractions: Conversations with passengers, especially engaging ones, can divert a driver's focus and contribute to accidents.

Common Injuries in Distracted Driving Accidents

Distracted driving accidents often lead to severe injuries due to the high speeds involved and the unexpected nature of these collisions. Common injuries include:

  • Whiplash: Sudden stops or impacts can cause rapid neck movement, leading to whiplash injuries that can cause long-term pain and discomfort.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): The force of an accident can result in head injuries, ranging from concussions to more severe traumatic brain injuries, impacting cognitive function and overall quality of life.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Accidents may lead to harm to the spinal cord, causing paralysis or other serious disabilities.
  • Broken Bones and Fractures: The impact of a distracted driving accident can cause fractures and broken bones, requiring extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation.
  • Internal Injuries: Blunt force trauma can lead to internal injuries, requiring immediate medical attention and often long-term care.

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

Victims of distracted driving accidents may be qualified for various damages, depending on the circumstances of the case. Potentially recoverable damages include:

  • Medical Expenses: Compensation for all 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 recovery.
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the physical and emotional distress experienced as a result of the accident.
  • Property Damage: Coverage for repairing or replacing damaged vehicles and personal property.
  • Loss of Consortium: Damages for the accident's effect on personal relationships and companionship.
