Distracted driving leads to car accidents

Driving is an action that requires concentration, and becoming distracted while driving can be very dangerous. Anything that takes a driver's attention away from the activity at hand, namely driving, can be considered a distraction. When a driver becomes distracted, the possibility of car accidents increases.

There are many ways in which a California driver may become distracted. Activities such as eating, drinking or changing a radio station may act as a distraction. In fact, even passengers in a car can keep a driver's attention from his or her driving.

Californians, like many other people across the United States, have become so dependent on mobile devices, resulting in electronic devices becoming a real concern when it comes to road safety. Research has shown a definite link between the use of cell phones while driving and an increased risk of an accident. In some of the studies, it was found that even just talking on a cell phone increases the risk of an accident.

Like most other states, California has banned the use of handheld cell phones, as well as texting while driving. While the ban on handheld cell phone use while driving has led to a decrease in the use of cell phones, crash statistics have increased. Clearly, cell phones are not the only things distracting drivers. More counter measures may be required to ensure a decrease in the number of accidents attributed to distracted driving.  

Be it as it may, a distracted driver remains a danger on the roads. California law allows for victims of a car accident -- due to a distracted driver -- to file personal injury claims, while the legal estate of deceased victims may file wrongful death claims. In such cases, it is the duty of the plaintiff to provide appropriate evidence that the defendant was negligent. Victims or their families may benefit from consulting a personal injury lawyer experienced in dealing with such cases for an evaluation of their individual cases and advice on how to proceed.
