Texting and talking on cellphones takes drivers’ minds and eyes off the road. Because they are not giving their full attention to driving, distracted drivers can cause accidents by:
- Failing to observe traffic signals
- Failing to adjust to changing traffic conditions
- Weaving into other traffic lanes
- Failing to see a cyclist or pedestrian
- Rear-ending another vehicle
While drivers of other cars are often injured in these accidents, distracted drivers also collide with motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians. Accident victims may suffer catastrophic injuries such as back and neck injuries, amputations, spinal cord injuries, internal injuries, and brain injuries. These types of injuries can cause temporary or permanent disability. The worst distracted driving accidents may result in wrongful death.
