Murfreesboro Distracted Driving Accident Attorney Helps You Gain Compensation for Others’ Negligence

Texting and driving is extremely dangerous; those who cause accidents while texting should be held responsible

While cell phones have revolutionized our lifestyles and allow us to stay connected with friends, family and colleagues like never before, they need to be put down while driving. It is a simple fact that distracted driving causes accidents, injuries and deaths. Each year, more than 3,000 people in America die in distracted driving accidents, while roughly 420,000 are injured. The U.S. Government estimates that at any given daytime moment, 660,000 drivers are using cell phones while driving. With harrowing statistics such as these, it is important to be alert on the roads.

However, even the most alert driver cannot account for the driving habits of other drivers. If you have been in a car accident  with a distracted driver, our Tennessee texting and driving attorneys can help you hold the negligent driver responsible and gain compensation for your damages.

What types of distractions can lead to an accident?

Given the widespread use of cell phones and text messaging, it makes sense that cell phones are a major accident-causing distraction. However, there are many other potential distractions in your vehicle that can lead to a distracted driver accident. While this list does not include every possible distraction, these are some actions to avoid while driving to ensure your safety and the safety of other drivers on the Tennessee roadways.

- Texting
- Talking on the phone using a handset or headset
- Eating, especially messy foods
- Drinking coffee, soft drinks or other beverages
- Using a radio, mp3 player, cell phone or other device to adjust music
- Using a cellphone or GPS device to find directions
- Turning to talk to passengers or children
- Reading billboards or roadside signs or looking at scenery or buildings
- Putting on makeup, shaving or otherwise using vanity mirrors
- Looking at a video or other on-board entertainment system

Distractions such as these cause accidents and end lives. If a driver is distracted due to these or any other distraction in the car, they may be liable under Tennessee law for any personal injuries that arise from a car accident. After a car accident, dealing with insurance companies, the other driver and the police can be a stressful process, and the help of an experienced distracted driver accident attorney like David L. Scott can help minimize the headaches of the process and help you gain compensation.
