Distraction is one the leading causes of motor vehicle accidents

Distracted driving, namely texting and driving, is one the leading causes of accidents in Pennsylvania and across the country. Since the invention of cell phones, distracted driving has been a major cause of motor vehicle accidents, but recent technology makes distraction even more of an issue. Common sources of distraction to drivers now include texting, answering emails, using a navigation system, responding to email and even taking pictures. 

AT&T is attempting to educate drivers on the dangers of texting and driving by offering a new simulated experience. In this experience, people can experience what it is like trying to control a vehicle while avoiding pedestrians and other vehicles when distracted behind the wheel. Many drivers learn that texting or any type of distraction makes it much more difficult to drive safely than most people realize.

It has been said that a driver who is texting exhibits similar behavior to drunk drivers. It is a completely preventable action, which makes it especially tragic when a person is injured or killed in a distracted driving accident. Fortunately, victims and families have options for legal recourse by which they can seek compensation for their suffering and financial losses.

If a Pennsylvania accident victim believes that he or she is the victim of distracted driving, it is important to work with a lawyer who understands how to build strong cases on behalf of their clients. It is possible to prove that a driver was texting or distracted through phone records and other evidence. Motor vehicle accidents are overwhelming and frustrating, but victims do not have to suffer alone.
