What is distracted driving?
Distracted driving means what it sounds like – the at-fault driver was not paying attention at the time of the crash. Examples of distracted driving can cover a wide range, including:
- Texting while driving.
- Talking on a cellphone while driving.
- Operating an electronic device while driving.
- Looking up directions or operating a GPS while driving.
- Eating while driving.
- Adjusting the radio.
Even talking to someone else in the vehicle while driving can be distracting, especially among less experienced teenage drivers. The more teenagers there are in a vehicle, the more likely a teen driver will cause a collision, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
How common are distracted driving accidents?
Despite warnings about the dangers of distracted driving, drivers who don’t pay attention continue to be one of the leading causes of car accidents. The NHTSA estimates that nearly 9 percent of all car accident fatalities occur due to distracted drivers.
And while drivers of all ages might be distracted, younger drivers cause more distracted driving accidents than anyone else on the road. In particular, drivers between the ages of 20 and 29 years old cause 25 percent of distracted driving fatalities nationwide, according to the NHTSA.
What are my legal options?
If a distracted driver caused your accident, you have several legal options to choose from to settle your case:
- Accept a settlement offer from the distracted driver’s insurance company.
- Ask for more money and negotiate a better settlement offer.
- File a lawsuit or take other legal action seeking financial compensation.
Many people choose to file a car accident lawsuit against the at-fault driver for one of two reasons:
- The at-fault driver’s insurance company refused to increase its settlement offer.
- The at-fault driver’s insurance company denied your accident claim.
Whatever the circumstances of your legal case, make sure you fully understand the options available to you. Make sure you talk to an attorney at our law firm as soon as possible.
