Representing Survivors Of Distracted Driving Accidents
Everyone knows that distracted driving is dangerous, yet it remains alarmingly common. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), distracted driving killed 3,166 people in the United States in 2017 alone. What makes these deaths most tragic is the fact that distracted driving is completely preventable.
At Law Offices of Derek M. Hays, LLC, we help people who have been hurt in accidents with distracted drivers pursue justice and fight for the compensation they need to get back on their feet. From our office in Lawrenceville, we serve clients throughout the surrounding areas of Georgia, including the Atlanta metro.
If you are concerned that your own distracted driving may have contributed to an accident, it is wise to speak to a lawyer to learn more about your options.
Common Distractions Behind The Wheel
Motorists are surrounded by potential distractions both inside and outside the vehicle. Some of the most common distractions that contribute to motor vehicle accidents include:
- Sending and reading text messages
- Talking on the phone
- Using social media
- Taking photos or video with a cell phone camera
- Eating or drinking
- Adjusting the radio, mirrors or other onboard equipment
- Picking up dropped objects
- Reading maps, newspaper or other printed materials
- Talking to passengers
While Georgia has fairly relaxed laws restricting cell phone use behind the wheel, it is possible for drivers to be legally responsible for an accident without having broken the state’s cell phone laws. At Law Offices of Derek M. Hays, LLC, we will review the facts of your case to build a compelling case for the compensation you need.
