Any mental or physical distraction while driving can potentially shatter someone’s future when a collision or crash occurs. According to the NHTSA, the three conditions that cause driver distractions are

  • Visual distraction: Driver stops paying attention to the road in order to perform another visual task.
  • Manual distraction: Driver takes hands off the steering wheel in order to manipulate a device or perform some manual task.
  • Cognitive distraction: Tasks that involve thinking about something other than driving.

Accidents resulting from these distractions are among top traffic concerns nationally and in the state of Florida. Regular yet tragic distractions involve

  • Driving and texting
  • Talking on cell phones
  • the use of radios/CDs
  • eating while driving
  • drinking and driving
  • grooming (shaving, applying making)
  • talking to passengers
  • using GPS or other navigation systems
  • reading or watching videos
  • general inattentiveness

The more we hold people responsible for injuries and deaths caused by distracted drivers, the more likely we are to drive down the number of wrecks caused by reckless distractions. You can be part of the difference by holding someone who has harmed you and your family accountable. The liable party should bear the costs that result from the accident. This includes financial compensation for medical expenses, lost income, damages for pain and suffering and property damage. In fatalities, the deceased’s survivors may be owed wrongful death damages.

Teens and Distracted Driving in Orlando

Multiple statistics exist to show that teenagers and young adults are often involved in these accidents. This may be due to the prevalence of electronics in society, where teens are regularly playing hand held game systems, driving and texting, or being passengers in vehicles with distracted drivers.

Florida lawmakers passed the Florida Ban on Texting While Driving Law in 2013 in an effort to curb roadway incidents blamed on digital distractions. Other distractions deemed negligent or wanton to human life may result in additional consequences.

In many cases, it may not be as obvious to detect distracted driving as the cause of a car accident.

This may include legally gathering cell phone records and witness statements, obtaining all police reports and emergency calls, subpoenaing driver history and medical records.

An effective attorney will aim to collect all possible damages for you, including fair compensation for lost income and medical expenses, pain and suffering, or wrongful death. At Kramer Law, we will seek damages on top of any insurance maximums if necessary.
