If your life has been turned upside down by your injuries, and you believe another person caused your crash, you need to speak with an attorney as soon as you can.
Negligent drivers cause almost all of the car accidents that happen in the United States. The NHTSA reports that more than 90% of the auto wrecks reported in the US are caused by some form of driver negligence. Currently, the most common form of driver negligence is distracted driving. The prevalence of distracted driving has been heavily accelerated by the constant use of smartphones. Most people feel like checking a short text is harmless while driving, however, this is never the case.
Anything that takes your eyes away from the road while you’re behind the wheel of a moving vehicle is considered negligent behavior. You should always keep your eyes and attention on the roadway and the vehicles around you when you’re driving. Failing to do so could put your life and the lives of those in your vehicle and on the road around you in serious danger.
