What Is Considered Distracted Driving?
If you’re behind the wheel of a moving vehicle and you aren’t paying attention to your surroundings, you are driving while distracted. Yet, people tend to associate distracted driving almost entirely with texting and driving. While texting and driving is likely the deadliest version of distracted driving—MSN reports that, according to The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, you are six times more likely to be in a crash from texting and driving than driving while intoxicated—it is far from the only cause.
Common distractions behind the wheel include:
- Talking on the phone
- Talking to passengers
- Driving children or pets
- Rummaging through a bag
- Using a radio or GPS
- Trying to pick up something that fell on the floor
The best way to prevent distracted driving is to take care of everything your essential needs—eating a meal, putting on makeup, making an important phone call—before you get behind the wheel. If something comes up during your drive that you must address immediately, pull over in a safe place before turning your attention away from the road.
Pursuing Compensation for Distracted Driving Accident Injuries in Pontiac
Michigan follows a no-fault car insurance system. This means that after a car accident, your injuries will be covered by your personal injury protection (PIP). Regardless of who caused the crash, your PIP will pay the medical bills of anyone who is covered under the policy. Unfortunately, PIP does not cover non-monetary damages that have resulted from the accident, such as pain and suffering.
We will do whatever we can to help you secure compensation for:
- All your related medical expenses, including ongoing costs
- Any income you lost from having to take time away from work
- Pain and suffering you endured as a result of the accident
- The cost of repairing or replacing your damaged car or other property
- Any other expenses related to your accident
Understanding and navigating the laws in a no-fault insurance system can be complicated. It may be in your best interest to contact a team of qualified personal injury lawyers to assist you through the process of filing a liability claim.
