Distracted Driving You Deserve a Voice in the Courtroom

Distracted Driving

Did You Suffer A Serious Injury?

Millions of drivers, passengers, cyclists, and pedestrians face the dangers of distracted drivers every day. According to safety experts, distracted driving can be broken down into three major categories:

  • Cognitive – Cases where the driver is thinking about things other than driving.
  • Visual – Cases where the driver looks away from the road.
  • Manual – Cases where the driver removes their hands from the steering wheel.

Everyone on the road is put in the greatest danger when all three types of distraction occur – one example of that is when the driver uses their cell phone behind the wheel.
