Distracted Driving Accidents

Our Car Accident Attorneys Are Available 24/7

Drivers become a threat to everyone on the road when their attention isn’t focused on recognizing and circumventing potential road hazards. In fact, distracted driving is responsible for over 1,000 car collisions and pedestrian accidents each day. When drivers aren’t attentive and responsible, they become a hazard to everyone else on the road.

If you’ve been in an accident caused by the negligence of a distracted driver, call Buchanan, Williams & O’Brien, P.C. Our skilled auto accident attorneys can evaluate your case and personally customize a legal strategy to help you pursue maximum compensation.

Call our car accident lawyers at (314) 635-7606 if you or a loved one has been injured by a distracted driver. We offer free consultations 7 days a week!

Causes of Distracted Driving

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approximates that 9 people die every day due to inattentive drivers. There’s a reason driving is considered a skill; it takes experience and keen focus to operate a motor vehicle both effectively and safely. Unfortunately, there are many available distractions that keep a driver from observing best safety practices.

Distracted driving can be caused by:

  • Using a cell phone
  • Talking with passengers
  • Eating and drinking in the car
  • Applying makeup
  • Checking a GPS device or map
  • Taking photographs

Distracted Drivers and Electronics

Our culture is extremely dependent on electronics for social entertainment and daily conveniences. Despite laws and awareness campaigns, drivers have difficulty keeping their hands and eyes phone-free. Even if a cell phone has hands-free and voice-command features, it is still a dangerous distraction while driving. It’s probably no surprise that cell phones are greatly responsible for the increase in distracted driving accidents and fatalities.
