Cell Phones, Texting, Other Distractions Accident Lawyer
Distracted driving is a terrible cause of automobile accidents, chiefly because such accidents are completely preventable. Driving a vehicle while distracted is responsible for 52% of all vehicle accidents. Distracted driving is usually thought to be texting or talking on a cellphone while driving. These two infractions are likely the most popular, but distracted driving also includes:
- Eating or drinking
- Adjusting the sound system
- Talking to other passengers
- Driving while drowsy or sleepy
- Using a GPS for travel
Although distracted driving is illegal in Georgia, and state laws prohibit texting and teen cell phone use while driving, Atlanta tops the nation as the city with the most distracted drivers. If you or a loved one were injured in an auto accident due to distracted driving, you may be eligible for compensation. Contact Stockbridge personal injury attorney Darrell T.
