Is a Distracted Driver Liable for Your Accident?

Distracted driving is a problem along the Dixie Highway and throughout Kentucky, and often, victims of accidents caused by such distraction do not realize that they could be eligible for compensation for their pain and suffering. A distracted driver is a danger to every person on the road, and this person may be financially responsible for the pain and suffering inflicted on accident victims.

If you were hurt in an accident, but are unsure of why it happened or what you should do next, it is important to reach out to an experienced personal injury attorney. It is possible that distracted driving was the cause of your accident, and your lawyer can help you move forward with the most beneficial course of action.

Recognizing distracted driving behaviors

It can be difficult to prove that a distracted driver was the reason you were hurt in an accident. Distracted drivers often display some of the same dangerous behaviors as drunk drivers do, which can include:

  • Swerving
  • Driving at erratic speeds
  • Running stop signs or traffic lights
  • Following other vehicles too closely
  • Reckless driving

Texting and driving is the most common, and perhaps most dangerous, type of distracted driving, but texting is not the only way that people may be tempted to take their eyes off of the road. Other types of distracted driving include:

  • Talking on the phone
  • Talking with passengers
  • Adjusting the radio or GPS system
  • Eating or grooming
  • Using social media

The experience of your attorney will have a direct impact on the outcome of your case. A lawyer with experience in distracted driving cases can evaluate the evidence, identify possible options for you and fight for full compensation for a range of financial losses you may have experienced after your accident, including medical bills, lost wages and more.

You have a right to a full recovery

You have the right to a full and fair recovery after an accident caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another person. If you believe that you have a rightful claim to compensation, it is beneficial to reach out for qualified legal assistance as soon as possible after your distracted driving accident. By taking quick action to protect your rights, you can pay your accident-related expenses, hold liable parties accountable and move forward with your life.
