Attentiveness is an essential aspect of safe driving. Anything that takes a driver’s eyes or focus off the road in front of him or her sets the scene for potential accidents. Distracted driving involves any activity or mental focus that takes a driver’s eyes, hands and/or attention off the task of driving safely.
After you have been injured in a car accident, you may believe you have no way of determining whether the other driver was at fault, and if so, how. However, a thorough investigation often uncovers evidence that a driver was distracted by any of the following:
- A Heated Conversation with a Passenger
- Fiddling with Radio Dials
- Operating or Reading a GPS Device or Smartphone
- Reaching for Something
- Texting via a Cellphone or Any Electronic Device
- Using a Cellphone
Even using a so-called hands-free electronic communication device can lead to distraction.
