Experienced Attorney In Distracted Driver Accident Cases

Distracted driving is defined as any activity which may direct a person’s attention away from driving.  All distractions may endanger the driver, passenger, and bystanders.

Have you or someone you love become injured in an accident that was caused by a distracted driver? Have you considered filing a damages claim to help compensate you for any losses that you may sustain as a result of that collision?

At the law office of Craig P. Hart, we have over twenty-two years of experience in accidents.

The Following Include some common distractions:

Types of Distractions

Distracted driving may present itself in many different forms, some of which may be more dangerous than others. In any case, there are several types of distractions that all drivers should be aware of.

  • Adjusting the radio
  • Drinking
  • Eating
  • Grooming
  • Navigating
  • Reading
  • Talking to passengers
  • Texting
  • Using a cell phone
  • Watching videos

Over the past decade, texting and driving have become the most significant distraction of all, as it requires visual, manual and cognitive attention.

Distracted Driving Injuries

Any auto accident possesses the ability to cause injuries, while distracted driving accidents may be more significant as the driver lacks time to maneuver around specific hazards. By doing so, it may result in severe injuries to the occupants of both vehicles.

The following include some common types of injuries sustained in a distracted driving accident:

  • Burns
  • Concussions
  • Facial damages
  • Fractured Bones
  • Internal damages
  • Lacerations
  • Loss of teeth
  • Seat belt injuries
  • Skull fractures
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Whiplash

If you or another person has sustained an injury following a collision, it is imperative to seek medical attention directly following the accident. This will provide you with medical documents required to formulate a robust case against the negligent driver. You need an attorney who is well versed in this legal terrain to guide you through this process correctly.
