Nowadays, nearly every individual has access to email accounts, bank accounts, maps, and contact with other persons through the use of their cellphone. While this can make life easier, these small devices can cause deadly car accidents if used while driving. In fact, Distraction.Gov, the official United States government website for distracted driving, states that at any given moment, roughly 660,000 drivers are using their cellphones while behind the wheel, leaving many innocent drivers at serious risk.

When a person becomes the victim of a distracted driving accident, they reserve the right to file a lawsuit against the driver responsible for their harm. However, these types of cases can be complex, so it is in the best interest of the injured party to contact experienced legal representation following a crash caused by a distracted driver.

A skilled attorney can pursue monetary compensation or the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Chiropractic costs
  • Physical therapy expenses
  • Emotional distresses

Common Forms of Distracted Driving

There are various forms of distracted driving. According to various sources, all forms of distracted driving fall into three different categories: visual distraction, mental distraction, and physical distraction. In some cases, a form of distracted driving can be classified in two or even all three of the categories.

Some of the most common forms of distracted driving include the following:

  • Texting
  • Eating
  • Talking on the phone
  • Talking to passengers
  • Reading
  • Examining maps
  • Drinking
  • Manipulating electronic devices

Regardless of what form of distracted driving a person may commit, all leave road-users at serious risk for harm.
