What is Considered Distracted Driving?

Distracted driving doesn't just mean someone was texting and driving. While distracted driving is the most common terminology used to describe paying more attention to a cell phone than to the road, it is not the only form of distracted driving. Distraction occurs anytime a person's eyes are not on the road. This could include activities like checking a map, looking at the radio, or looking at a child in the back seat. Any non-driving activity that takes place while a person is driving is considered distracted driving. Distracted driving is dangerous because it takes the driver's mind off of the rules of the road and inhibits the ability to make quick decisions such as swerving to miss a stalled car.

Other causes of action may exist for your case. It is important that you write down everything that happened. This information should be given to the attorney during your consultation. Get a copy of the police report to take to your consultation.

Be prepared to sign releases for the law office to obtain all of your medical and treatment records in relation to your accident. Your attorney will need this information in order to work with your insurance company or to present if your case goes to trial.
