Lakeland Distracted Driving Accidents
Driving While Distracted Is Dangerous & Completely Preventable
Every year, approximately 10% of traffic accident fatalities in the U.S. occur in collisions involving distracted drivers. Distracted driving is dangerous and completely preventable. Drivers must focus their full attention on operating their vehicles safely and obeying traffic laws, or they risk causing or being involved in collisions that can cause catastrophic injuries and claim innocent lives.
At Dismuke Law, we are passionate about helping victims of distracted driving accidents. We believe in helping those who have already been injured by pursuing fair compensation for their losses, while increasing awareness of the dangers of distracted driving to help prevent future accidents. Serving Central Florida from offices in Lakeland and Tampa, we fight to right the wrongs caused by texting, cellphone use, and other distractions on America’s roads.
Examples of Distracted Driving
Distracted driving can take on many forms. It may affect visual attention (eyes on the road), cognitive attention (thinking about driving), and/or manual attention (hands on the wheel). Some distractions, such as texting, affect all three of these forms of attention and are the most dangerous, but any distraction increases the likelihood of a collision.
Our attorneys have experience with distracted driving accidents caused by:
- Operating a smartphone
- Adjusting the radio
- Talking to a passenger
- Watching videos
- Using a navigation system
- Personal grooming
- Applying makeup
- Taking selfies/photos
- Changing clothes
- Eating and drinking
- Romantic encounters
There is no excuse for distracted driving. If another driver was careless and did not have his or her full attention on the road, and this caused a car accident that left you seriously injured, get in touch with a law firm that can help right this wrong.
