Helping distracted driving victims in San Joaquin County

Mobile and electronic devices - and our attachment to them - has helped to fuel a rise in the number of motor vehicle accidents caused by distracted drivers. In fact, the California Office of Traffic Safety estimates that distracted driving is now involved in more than 80 percent of all car accidents in the United States. At the same time, inattentive driving is responsible for nearly as many as 3,000 traffic deaths each year in the United States.

Although cell phones and mobile devices have certainly led to increases in distracted driving incidents and are the focus of many laws aimed at curbing the behavior, they are not the only things that can distract drivers. Distracted driving is caused by anything that may cause you to divert your attention away from the task of driving. It may be caused by anything from having a pet in your lap to personal grooming.

It only takes a short period of distraction for an accident to happen. Regardless of your own driving abilities, sometimes there is little you can do to get out of the way of a distracted driver. In such cases, the legal system may offer recourse.

If you were in a crash that was the fault of a distracted driver, you could be entitled to compensation. The help of an experienced personal injury attorney, like those at Drivon, Turner and Waters PLC, can assist you in recovering for your damages. We have extensive experience helping those who have been injured by careless drivers. Visit our website to see how we have helped other victims of distracted driving car accidents.
