Distracted Driving Accidents in California

Let Our Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers Recover Your Entitled Compensation on Your Behalf

Our smartphones have become one of our most prized and commonly used possessions, such as your wallet or your car keys. From communicating through texts and using social media platforms to staying updated with current events or playing games, we are constantly on our cell phones for various reasons. Unfortunately, people often use our phones while they’re behind the wheel.

If you have suffered an injury in a car accident caused by a distracted motorist who was texting while driving, you may be eligible to recover financial compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit with the help of a lawyer. At Torem & Associates, our California personal injury attorneys are dedicated to maximizing your settlement to help you make the best possible recovery from injury. We understand that a serious injury could force you out of work and make it difficult to support your family while you’re trying to heal, which is why we will protect your rights and best interests in order to get the justice and money you deserve.

Common Types of Distractions

Distracted driving has become one of the most common causes of car accidents in the United States—even more prevalent than drunk driving accidents. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, distracted driving accidents result in 3,300 traffic deaths annually. In addition, motorists are at least twice as likely to be involved in a collision if they are texting and driving.

Distracted driving affects a person in three ways: visually, manually, and cognitively. Visual distractions take your eyes away from the road, manual distractions take your hands away from the steering wheel, and cognitive distractions take your mind away from the primary task of operating the vehicle.

Common forms of distraction include:

  • Using a cell phone
  • Using a GPS navigation system
  • Switching stations on the radio
  • Eating or drinking
  • Grooming such as brushing teeth or applying makeup
  • Picking up or searching for a dropped item
  • Having a conversation with passengers
  • Tending to children or pets
  • Smoking

Distracted driving is also a traffic violation which results in a $75 ticket for the first offense. So, if police officers determine that the at-fault driver was distracted when he/she caused the accident, the citation he/she for violating the law can be used as evidence in your case, along with photographs of the accident and witness testimony.
