Distracted Driving Accident Attorney

Car accidents are incredibly frightening, stressful experiences, and the most serious ones are often a result of distraction at the hands of the driver. This is why it is so essential every driver focuses on being present each and every time he or she is behind the wheel, as doing otherwise may result in disastrous consequences. If you or a loved one has been injured at the hands of a distracted driver, our Savannah car accident lawyers of Brooks Law Office want to do everything in our power to obtain the compensation you deserve.

The following are the most common examples of distracted driving, including but not limited to:

  • Texting or talking on the phone
  • Eating or drinking
  • Talking to passengers
  • Fiddling with radio or GPS console
  • Listening to music
  • Driving under the influence
  • Putting on makeup or otherwise grooming oneself
  • Watching videos
  • Reading
  • Reaching over to grab something from the backseat or passenger side

While this list includes the most common culprits behind distracted driving, it is not exhaustive–any behavior which removes your attention from the road is incredibly dangerous and puts you and all others on the road at risk of serious injury.

Dangers of Texting & Driving

Texting while driving can cause three types of distractions: visual, manual, and cognitive. Visual distractions take your eyes off the road, manual distractions take your hands off the wheel, and cognitive distractions take your mind off the primary task of operating a vehicle.

According to the National Safety Council, if a driver travels at a speed of 55 mph while spending five seconds sending or reading a text message, they have traveled the length of an entire football field. Texting while driving increases the chance of being involved in a collision by more than 20 times.

Unfortunately, many drivers overestimate their multitasking abilities. And despite laws banning handheld cellphone use and texting while driving, drivers continue to engage in this risky behavior, thus endangering themselves and everyone else on the road.

Do not assume the insurance company is looking out for your best interest.  They are in the business of making money, not giving it away. They can make you a low-ball offer or deny your claim all together.  Contact Savannah's Personal Injury Law Firm to get a free evaluation of your case.
