Can I Sue if I am in an Accident caused by a Cumming, Georgia Distracted Driver?

distracted drivingThe United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicates that approximately 1,000 people are injured in auto accidents involving distracted drivers each day.  To deal with the problem, several states, including Georgia, have passed laws aimed at reducing distracted driving by prohibiting drivers from engaging in certain tasks. For example, it has been against the law to text while driving in Georgia since July 1st of 2010. Unfortunately, distracted driving accidents continue to occur, sometimes with devastating results. These accidents can cause tremendous damage and serious injury, which in turn can result in significant losses for victims. An experienced attorney can help individuals who are injured by distracted drivers recover for their losses and hold those responsible for your injuries accountable.

Three Types of Driver Distraction

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration places driver distractions into one of 3 main categories: manual, visual, and cognitive. Some distractions involve 2 or even all three of these types of distractions, making them particularly dangerous. For example, texting involves manipulation your phone with your hand, looking at what you are writing or reading a text, as well as thinking about the text message you are reading or composing. In addition to texting, there are many other potential driver distractions. Some of the most common include:

  • Reading
  • Eating
  • Grooming
  • Adjusting the radio
  • Talking to passengers
  • Looking at scenery
  • Applying makeup
  • Searching for items in the car
  • Talking on a cell phone
  • Using a GPS device

There are many other potential distractions that could potentially lead to a car crash, and an experienced lawyer will be able to review your case in order to determine whether any evidence of driver distraction exists.
