Standing Up For Distracted Driving Victims

You probably see it every day: The driver next to you on the highway is looking at their phone, likely texting a friend or checking their e-mails. They are swerving a bit in the lane, and you know that one day they are going to cause an accident. It's frustrating and annoying to see, but downright infuriating when another driver's bad habit results in a car accident where you pay the price.

If you have been injured in a car accident, and the other driver was texting or otherwise distracted while operating the vehicle, you may be eligible for compensation. We at Milavetz, Gallop & Milavetz, P.A., will fight to get you the full compensation you deserve.

What Is Considered Distracted Driving?

Distracted driving is most often associated with cellphone use, especially talking on the phone and texting while driving. However, many other activities can become distractions, including:

  • Conversing with other passengers
  • Tending to children in the backseat
  • Putting on makeup
  • Eating or drinking
  • Smoking
  • Changing the radio station
  • Updating the GPS or map app
  • Texting
  • Making phone calls
  • Using apps or social media

Anything that takes a driver's hands off the wheel, eyes off the road or attention away from the surroundings can lead to an accident.
