Driver Distraction & Car Accidents

Auto Accidents Caused by Distracted Drivers

Drivers can cause accidents when they become distracted and take their attention off the road. Driver distraction can occur due to:

  • Eating while driving
  • Applying make-up
  • Changing a CD
  • Talking on a cell phone or texting
  • Reading
  • Using a GPS system

Children, pets and other passengers in the car can also cause distractions that result in an accident. If you were injured by a distracted driver, contact a Coral Springs car accident lawyer to discuss your rights to personal injury compensation. You may qualify for damages for accident-related expenses including hospitalization and medical treatment. Compensation can also cover lost wages, pain, suffering, emotional trauma, home care and property damage.
