What Is Distracted Driving?
Distracted driving means dividing your attention between driving and doing something else. That something else may include talking on a cellphone, reading or sending a text message, or any activity that takes a driver's attention away from the road.
Some forms of distracted driving are illegal. For example, in Virginia, novice drivers are prohibited from using cellphones while driving. All drivers are prohibited from texting. Even if distracted driving is not illegal, it can still be a factor in determining liability in an accident.
If you were involved in a crash, our attorneys can obtain the cellphone records of the other driver to find out if he or she was using a cellphone in the moments before the accident. If the other driver was distracted, your personal injury case will become a lot stronger. This is the reason we have a civil justice system, to hold negligent people accountable. Our lawyers will help you seek maximum compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
