Distracted Driving is a Form of Negligence

A successful personal injury lawsuit or claim relies on the idea of "liability." You must prove that another party, such as the other driver, is liable for your accident and your injuries. A skilled attorney can help you establish liability for your car accident.

Liability, which is the failure to exercise reasonable care or caution, is closely tied to the idea of negligence. Distracted driving, such as texting while driving, is dangerous and careless. Distracted drivers sacrifice others' safety behind the wheel and failure to exercise caution while driving. Thus, distracted driving is negligent.

Types of Distracted Driving

Distracted driving comes in many forms. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are three primary forms of driver distraction: visual, manual, and cognitive. Some activities are a combination of these factors. For example, texting while driving is visually, mentally, and manually distracting. Other activities, such as eating or grooming behind the wheel, are visual and manual distractions. Some common forms of distracted driving are:

  • Cell Phones
  • Eating
  • Makeup / Grooming
  • Reading
  • Adjusting the Radio
  • Using a GPS

"Can I sue someone for texting and driving?"

Yes. If you can demonstrate that a distracted driver caused your injuries, you can seek compensation for your suffering through a personal injury claim or lawsuit. Texting and driving is one of the most common forms of distracted driving. According to research, at least 23% of car accidents in 2011 involved cell phones. Texting distracts the average driver for about five seconds. In this amount of time, a car moving 55 mph will travel the length of a football field. In this amount of time, a driver could easily cause a serious accident.
