Understanding Auto Accidents Find Out If You May Be Entitled to Compensation

Is Distracted Driving a Major Problem?

Have you ever been tempted to send an email or respond to a text message from behind the wheel? You are not alone. Although this type of behavior is considered distracted driving and could cause a car accident, people still admit to such things as sending text messages while driving.

Not only is writing, reading, or sending a text message from behind the wheel illegal in the state of Georgia, but texting while driving can literally mean the difference between life and death. However, this is not the only distracted driving behavior that occurs from the driver's seat.

Drivers participate in other distracted driving activities, including:

  • Checking social networking sites
  • Emailing
  • Talking on a hand-held cell phone
  • Talking to passengers in their own cars
  • Dealing with children in the back seat
  • Eating and drinking
  • Grooming
  • Selecting songs from an iPod or changing radio stations
  • Inputting a location in a GPS system

Because there are a number of different items to distract drivers from their one job—driving—it is no wonder why distracted driving has become a major problem across the nation. Multitasking can be useful in some situations, but never while behind the wheel of a car.

Texting while driving or other distracted driving behaviors can lead to an increase in car crashes. Performing non-driving tasks at the wheel of the car can lead to serious accidents that could be potentially fatal.

If you have been injured by a distracted driver in Marietta, Georgia, then you may be entitled to financial compensation for medical bills, physical therapy, lost wages, and more.
