What Is Distracted Driving?
Distracted driving is any activity that takes your attention away from the road. Texting, talking on the phone, eating, putting on makeup, reading, and even interacting with your pets are all examples of common distracted driving behaviors. When you are driving, your full attention should be on the road and the task of driving. Any other activity that distracts you from the road poses a serious risk to your safety and the safety of others on the road.
Distracted driving accidents can be caused by a variety of different behaviors. The most common cause of distracted driving accidents is texting while driving, which is a growing problem across the nation.
Other common causes of distracted driving accidents include:
- Talking on the phone
- Looking at your GPS
- Eating or drinking
These are all common activities that people may do while they are driving. Unfortunately, these activities can all be deadly when they are done while behind the wheel. Even glancing away from the road for a few seconds can be enough time to cause a car accident.
The Dangers of Distracted Driving
When you are driving, your eyes should be on the road and your hands should be on the wheel. Distractions can come in many forms, but they all have one thing in common: they cause your eyes and hands to be off the road and off the wheel. This is a recipe for disaster.
Distracted driving can cause a wide range of accidents and injuries, including:
- Catastrophic injuries
- Brain injuries
- Burn injuries
- Broken bones
- Neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
These are all severe and potentially life-altering injuries that can be caused by a few seconds of distracted driving. If you have been injured in a car accident caused by a distracted driver, you deserve to recover the financial compensation you need to move forward with your life.
