There are a variety of distractions that can result in drivers causing car accidents. For car accident victims who have been wrongfully harmed by another driver's negligence while talking or texting on a cell phone; playing with a radio or navigational device; or eating while driving, victims can suffer a frustrating experience. In addition, serious injuries and death are caused by distracted driving.
Victims may suffer physical, financial and emotional harm following a car accident. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the significance of the problem of distracted driving is demonstrated by the number of accidents, injuries and deaths it causes. Each day, the CDC reports, 1,153 victims are injured and 9 victims are killed in car accidents involving distracted driving.
