Driver Distraction & Car Accidents
Oklahoma City Car Accident Attorney
Talking on the phone, eating, drinking, looking at a map and even applying make-up - these are all activities that we have seen drivers doing while they are driving. Driving while distracted is dangerous and will increase the likelihood of a car accident,
motorcycle accident or
truck accident. Although you may have suffered serious
injury if a distracted driver caused your accident, there are various ways that an experienced car accident lawyer can help you begin rebuilding and moving on with your life.
How Does A Distracted Driver Cause a Car Accident?
Driving requires one's full attention. This type of activity requires a driver's eyes on the road and hands on the steering wheel. Any activity that takes a driver's attention off the road and one or both of his or her hands from the wheel will place the driver and all other people on the road at risk of involvement in a car accident for one or both of the following reasons:
- The driver was distracted and therefore did not notice a hazard, traffic signal, change in traffic, etc.
- The driver was unable to respond properly or in time because his or her hands were off the wheel.
