Experience And Results Are What Matter

Why is distracted driving such a dangerous practice?

The world is not a simple place and to navigate the many tasks that a North Carolina resident must accomplish on any given day generally requires them to multitask in order to have a chance at staying on top of their responsibilities. However, there is one time during the day that a person should put everything else to the side and focus on a single task: while driving an automobile.

Automobiles are complex machines and they are driven in places where other cars, trucks, and vehicles, as well as bicycles, pedestrians, construction crews, and other hazards may be regularly present. In addition to expected obstacles that may appear in a driver's way, changing weather conditions may turn an otherwise easy commute into a treacherously dangerous endeavor. Put simply, even without an additional in-car distraction a driver has many things to pay attention to in order to smoothly operate his vehicle.

However, many drivers find it difficult to put down their phones, stop their games or movies, end their conversations, ignore their texts, or finish their meals before they get behind the wheels of their cars. Any activity that distracts a driver from the task of actually driving their car is something that can lead to distracted driving, and distracted driving can have fatal consequences when drivers do not focus on the safe movement of their cars and trucks.

Distracted drivers who cause car accidents are often found to be negligent, and negligence can generally serve as a basis for a civil claim for damages when a person is injured in a vehicle collision. Car accident injuries can range from minor to life-threatening and any victim who has suffered the consequences of an accident may benefit from discussing their case with a personal injury attorney who works with distracted driving accident victims.
