For assistance, call our firm to speak with a Columbia distracted driver accident lawyer and schedule a consultation.

How Distractions Threaten Us All

Driving a vehicle is a complicated activity, which deserves your full attention. Unfortunately, the number of distracted driving accidents is increasing. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that over 3,000 people were killed in distracted driving collisions in 2022. Thousands of other people are severely injured in one of these collisions.

Some of the most serious distractions include:

  • Cell phones
  • Pets
  • Food or drink
  • Small children
  • GPS devices

It only takes a second for an accident to occur. Some people look away briefly to adjust the dial on their radio or the air conditioning. Even a simple act like that is deadly. Within seconds, they could smash into another vehicle or a pedestrian attempting to cross the street—all because they didn’t see that person for a split second.

Distraction takes many forms: cognitive, manual, and visual. While looking at a phone, a driver usually removes one hand from the wheel, which impedes their ability to take defensive action. And cognitive distraction is the most serious of all. Even if a driver is looking at the road, their mind is elsewhere. They can’t register what is happening in front of them.

Your Right to Compensation

Distracted driving is negligent behavior. We expect reasonably careful people to focus on the road and limit the distractions around them. When they fail, they are negligent.

If you were hurt by a distracted driver, you can seek compensation for your various economic and non-economic losses, like medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, car damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Let our legal team focus on finding sufficient evidence to prove a motorist was distracted. For example, the other driver might have been talking on the cell phone or reading a text message. We can request copies of their cell phone records, which will show when they were on the phone. This type of evidence is hard to argue against. Other evidence includes eyewitnesses who saw a driver holding a phone in the seconds before a crash.
