When To Sue for a Distracted Driving Accident
We want Los Angeles roadways to be safe, so when you cruise on the 10, 60 or the 105, you should feel secure that fellow drivers around you are paying attention behind the wheel.
Don’t assume other drivers will respect themselves and others, or engage in the risky and often deadly behavior of driving while distracted.
While you may think of distracted driving as cell phone related, the truth is distracted driving applies to many accident causing behaviors, such as eating, drinking, changing the radio, adjusting climate controls, reading a book, petting a pet, or gawking at a celebrity in Beverly Hills.
In other words, anytime you are not focused on the road, the traffic, checking your mirrors, and monitoring your speed, you are engaging in distracted driving.
The problem with distracted driving is that it causes accidents in alarming rates.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), EVERY SINGLE DAY in the United States distracted driving kills 9 people and injures 1,000 more. That’s an astounding figure and completely avoidable.
Distracted driving is an epidemic and something the Los Angeles City Council is fuming about.
Unfortunately, traffic patrol can only do so much. It is up to injury lawyers to help keep Los Angeles distracted drivers in check.
