Distracted Driving Accidents

According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration in 2016, 78% of all injuries involving distracted drivers accidents were the result of texting. Some of the other common scenarios of distracted driving accidents can occur from walking across or riding a bicycle across an intersection. Running, walking or cycling down a neighborhood street or rural road are other activities that can result in injuries, or even death if struck by a distracted driver. In either case, proving that the driver was distracted can often be an extremely difficult task. Smartphone usage, changing a radio station, glaring sun, or unfavorable road conditions are all common factors of distracted driving accidents.
