Distracted Driving Accidents

Plain and simple, distracted driving is a deadly behavior. In fact, federal estimates suggest that distraction contributes to 16 percent of all fatal crashes, leading to around 5,000 deaths every year. It’s no wonder that 80 percent of drivers cite distraction as a serious problem and a behavior that makes them feel less safe on the road, according to AAA Foundation.

  • The No. 1 cause of unintentional deaths in the United States is car crashes.
  • About 100 people die every day in car crashes.
  • Up to 90 percent of car crashes are caused by driver error.
  • About 26 percent of all car crashes involve cell phones or hands-free devices.

Most people have future repercussions when they are the victims of texting and driving, or distracted driving accidents. For example, you may have been hit in a crosswalk by a driver who was busy using a cell phone. If you suffer any injuries, permanent or otherwise, you will need regular therapy or treatment, which means medical bills.
