If a driver is focusing on something other than the task of driving, then he or she is engaging in driver distraction. Distracted drivers put others at risk because they are not paying sufficient attention to the road and are therefore more likely to make mistakes that lead to automobile collisions. Deland auto accident attorney James O. Cunningham has been helping victims of all kinds of car accidents since 1977, assisting victims in the pursuit of financial compensation for their injuries, monetary losses and pain and suffering.

Have you or someone you love been in an accident caused by a distracted driver? If so, please contact James O. Cunningham at 888.352.2886 today to schedule a free consultation.

Deland Auto Accidents Attorney Explains How You Are at Risk

When you hear the term distracted driving, you may automatically think of drivers talking on cell phones while behind the wheel. It may surprise you to learn that research performed by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles indicates that many other things pose even greater risks to drivers than talking on a cell phone does. The following are examples of these:

  • Shifting attention to an outside person, object or event (also known as rubbernecking)
  • Eating and drinking
  • Adjusting an electronic device such as the car radio, an iPod or GPS device
  • Talking to other occupants in the car
  • Smoking a cigarette
  • Fatigue

These distractions and others contributed to collisions that killed nearly 6,000 automobile accident victims and injured over half a million throughout the United States in 2008.

Deland Automobile Accident Lawyer Holds Distracted Drivers Accountable

Current legislation in Florida and throughout the United States does not do enough to protect you and your family from distracted drivers. Even in states where using a cell phone to talk or text is illegal, drivers continue to use them when they should focus on the road and the cars around them. Every driver knows that doing anything else while driving takes his or her attention away from the task of driving; yet, many continue to engage in these behaviors. If you or a family member has suffered injury in an automobile accident as the result of such negligence on the part of another driver, turn to Deland auto accident attorney James O. Cunningham for assistance. To schedule a complimentary evaluation of your case, please call 888.352.2886 today.
