If you were injured by a distracted driver, the Atlanta personal injury lawyers at The Krause Law Firm can assist you. We have over 50 years of combined experience handling personal injury cases. Even though many distracted drivers don’t intend to harm other people on the road, when they cause an accident, they are still responsible for the property damage and injuries that resulted from their actions.
There are many things a driver can engage in that will divert his attention from driving. The longer drivers operate a vehicle, the more comfortable they get about not paying attention to the road at all times. Unfortunately, engaging in activities that take the driver’s focus off the road increases the probability an accident will occur. Some common distractions are:
- Applying makeup while driving
- Sending and reading text messages
- Talking on the phone
- Texting while driving
- Reading paperwork
- Arguing with passengers in the car
- Trying to retrieve objects in the car that are not comfortably within reach
