Injured by a distracted driver?
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.

What to Do After Your Accident?
The most important thing to do is seek medical treatment if you have been injured in an accident. And there are other steps you can take to improve your chances of securing compensation, like preserving evidence. Taking photographs of the vehicles involved as well as the accident scene can be helpful, while getting the vehicle repaired can compromise important evidence.
It is also important to be careful about what you say to the insurance companies. They are trying to limit their liability and may try to get you to make statements that hurt your case. To ensure your rights are protected in your state consult with an experienced car accident attorney.
