National data indicates that distracted driving accidents are on the rise. This includes texting-while-driving accidents and fumbling-at-the-infotainment-system accidents as well. Distracted driving occurs when a driver takes his eyes and attention off the road. This can lead to rear-end collisions, illegal lane changes, failure to maintain a lane, and even pedestrian or cyclist accidents.
If another driver causes a serious accident while distracted, he or she is liable for all damages including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Sad as it is, drunk driving accidents continue to be a major cause for concern on American roadways. Not only are there more arrests for drunk driving, the consequences of drunk driving keep getting worse.
