TYPES OF DISTRACTED DRIVING Have You Been a Victim?
Inattentive driving is becoming more and more frequent in modern society due to drivers consistently using technology when operating a motor vehicle. Cellphones, digital displays, and other disruptions abound, but they aren’t the only form of distractions that could be putting you in danger. We’ve provided the three forms of distracted driving so you are empowered with information in case you are involved in an accident. VISUAL DISTRACTION A visual distraction is something that takes the driver’s attention off the road and focuses it elsewhere. This distraction is becoming increasingly more common and provides a serious threat to all drivers on the road.
MANUAL DISTRACTION Manual distraction is when the driver’s hands aren’t on the wheel or gear shift. It could be the driver dropped something or they are grabbing an item from elsewhere in the car. Regardless, the dangers are just as high as with any other form on this list. COGNITIVE DISTRACTION A cognitive distraction is something that deters the thought process of the driver so they are no-longer focused on operating their vehicle. This includes a multitude of scenarios, but is just as distracting as manual and visual diversions. If you or a loved one has been injured by a distracted driver, contact us today. We will provide you with competent and aggressive legal representation so you receive the necessary compensation to recover from your injuries. Let us help you understand your options by giving us a call at (860) 560-7226.
