Distracted Driving Cases We Handle

When most people think of distracted driving, they typically think of using a cell phone while driving. However, distracted driving is not limited to using technology while driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), distracted driving is any activity that a driver does that takes their attention away from the road and increases the risk of a car accident.

Furthermore, NHTSA has found that nearly 80% of car accidents have involved distracted drivers. Some common forms of distracted driving include the following:

  • Using the phone while driving
  • Talking to passengers
  • Eating or drinking
  • Grooming or looking in the mirror
  • Smoking
  • Using car interfaces such as a music system and GPS
  • Looking for objects
  • Becoming distracted by children or pets

Since 2010, driving while texting (reading, writing and sending messages) on a cell phone has been illegal for all drivers in Kentucky. However, adult drivers are allowed to use a GPS or make a phone call while driving, but if they become distracted and cause injuries by doing so, they may still be held accountable for being distracted. For drivers under 18, the use of any cell phone while driving is illegal.

If you suspect the driver who caused your injuries was distracted, a lawyer can help determine if this can be proven in court. While some drivers may admit to being distracted, it may be necessary to gather evidence or interview witnesses to prove your claim. At Hare Wynn | Accident & Injury Lawyers, we are more than capable of helping build your case by gathering and presenting evidence, interviewing witnesses, and crafting legal arguments.

Depending on the specifics of your case and injuries, you may be entitled to various forms of compensation. Your compensation could cover damages related to the following:

  • Short-term and long-term medical expenses
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of income due to recovery
  • Loss of future earning potential
  • Pain and suffering

If you have tragically lost a loved one because of a car accident caused by distracted driving, we can help. While filing a wrongful death lawsuit can never make up for the pain of losing someone you love, it can be an important part of seeking justice. If a distracted driver caused the death of someone you love, you may be entitled to compensation for your loss.
