Distracted Driver Accidents
Working to Make the Roads in Walla Walla Safer
When people get behind the wheel, they owe it to themselves, their passengers and others on the road to give driving their full attention. Failing to do so can potentially lead to deadly car accidents. Despite this fact, there are many people who engage in distracted driving. Distracted driving can occur in a number of ways.
Here are just a few examples:
- Texting while driving
- Eating while driving
- Putting on makeup while driving
- Reading a map while driving
- Simply paying attention to other things more than to one's driving
- Use a cell phone or other electronic device while driving (with no hands-free device)
The Center for Disease Control reports that every day, 8 individuals are killed and more than 1,100 are injured in an accident wherein distracted driving was a factor. If you have been injured because of someone else's distracted driving, it's time to take action. With the help of a knowledgeable attorney, you could potentially be compensated for your injuries.
