Distracted Driver Accidents Lawsuit Injury Lawyer
When a driver takes their eyes and attention from the road and his or her surroundings, serious accidents can occur. Distracted driving has become more and more common with the use of mobile devices, creating dangers on roadways. When a driver is distracted, and the lack of attention causes a serious injury accident, the driver is liable for the damages to the victim.
Extensive awareness campaigns have been initiated to bring to light the dangers of texting and driving. Not only has the danger been conveyed to the public, in Georgia, using any hand-held mobile device while driving is illegal, whether texting, making a call or just holding the device. However, distracted driving is not limited to cell phones and other mobile devices. Other activities can cause distracted drivers and accidents. They include smoking, eating, drinking, changing feature settings, conversing with other passengers and reaching for items in the vehicle.
Injury Claims In Distracted Driving Accidents
When a distracted driver causes an accident, it can alter the life of injured victims. Whether they hit another vehicle, a bicyclist or a pedestrian, the impact can cause serious injuries or loss of life. Injury claims can be made against the at-fault driver, usually paid through their insurance coverage. However, insurance companies are in business to make money, paying as little as possible out on injury claims. Having a personal injury attorney to pursue fair compensation for injuries and damages can make a significant difference in the amount of funds recovered for victims of a distracted driving accident.
