What is Considered "Distracted Driving?"
The term "distracted driving" refers to any activity that takes a driver's attention away from the road. This includes using a phone to talk, text, or browse the internet. It can also involve using a GPS, eating and drinking, putting on makeup, reading a book or newspaper, or performing any other activity that requires one of your hands to be taken off the wheel or your eyes off the road. In some cases, a driver's inattention could be caused by a medical condition that distracts them from the road. If you were involved in an accident caused by a driver who was distracted, you may have grounds to file a personal injury claim.
What are the Most Common Causes of Distracted Driving Accidents?
Text messaging while driving is the leading cause of distracted driving accidents in the United States. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 3,500 people were killed in 2021 in crashes involving distracted drivers who were texting. In fact, the Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety reports that more than half of all traffic fatalities in the state involve a driver who was distracted in some way.
Other common causes of distracted driving accidents include:
- Using a handheld phone
- Eating or drinking
- Putting on makeup
- Reading a book, newspaper, or other publication
- Watching a video
- Talking to passengers
- Using a navigation system
- Grooming pets
No matter what caused the distracted driving accident, you may be able to hold the driver liable for your injuries if you can prove that their negligence was the primary cause of the crash.
What are the Most Common Injuries in Distracted Driving Accidents?
Injuries from a distracted driving accident can be severe and life-altering. Common injuries include:
- Head injuries
- Back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Nerve damage
- Internal bleeding
- Broken bones
Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may need extensive medical treatment and rehabilitative care to recover.
