Distracted Driving Accidents
New Jersey Distracted Driving Accidents
Distracted driving has been a problem since the first automobile hit the roads. Drivers have always faced competition for their attention, but the problem has seemingly grown much worse in recent years. Traditional distractions such as eating, smoking, kids, pets and roadside accidents have been joined by cell phones, navigation devices and other technology to lure drivers’ attention away from the act of safe driving.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, distracted driving leads to more than 3,000 traffic deaths every year. Hundreds of thousands of injuries result from drivers taking their eyes off the road, their hands off the wheel or their minds off the task of driving. Those numbers might well be low, as it is not always easy to prove that driver distraction caused an accident. Distracted driving is one of the reasons we advise clients to stick to the facts when making statements after an accident. Your understanding of what caused your accident could easily be wrong.
