Driver crashes into cop car while playing Pokemon Go

It seems like every year there is a new phenomenon that is taking drivers' attention away from the road. Cell phones, texting, games, GPS and even the radio all had their day in the hot seat. The newest fad to hit drivers is the game Pokemon Go. Pokemon Go is a game that people can play on their smartphones. This particular driver was playing the game when he got into the accident.

Pokemon Go is a smartphone-based game that requires players to watch their phones as they walk around. To play the game, players must walk around while they look for Pokemon (creatures) that they can catch. The more Pokemon, a player, finds, the more that player will advance in the game.

It is a terrible idea to play Pokemon Go and drive. But apparently, a driver in Maryland did not get that memo and was playing the game when he side-swiped a parked police cruiser. Luckily the officer was outside of the vehicle at the time of the accident, and so no one was injured. The driver in question pulled over immediately and met with the officers. As far as accidents go, this was not serious, but it is very easy to imagine how it could have been.

Something is always going to distract drivers from operating their vehicles. Once this fad passes, another will take its place. But just because it is inevitable does not mean that you shouldn't prepare for an accident just in case. A lawyer can help you rebuild your life after an accident. You may want to consider filing a lawsuit because you may have suffered injuries. A lawsuit can help you get the compensation you deserve to help you pay your medical bills.
