Our Personal Injury Lawyers Represent Those Injured by Distracted Drivers
While many automobile, truck, motorcycle, and bicycle crashes can result from inclement weather and/or difficult road conditions, recent research indicates that human error accounts for about 90% of the motor vehicle accidents that occur in the United States. Intoxicated drivers and excessive speed are among the most common reasons for traffic accidents, but according to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a significant number of collisions are now being linked to distracted drivers.
The NHTSA defines distracted driving as “a specific type of inattention that occurs when drivers divert their focus from the act of driving task and focus on some other activity.” Any activity that shifts the driver’s attention from the road can be a distraction. Examples of distracted driving include texting, talking on the phone, eating, changing radio stations, using the navigation system, or interacting with others inside your vehicle.
If you have suffered injuries from a crash caused by the negligence of another party, call Burg Simpson for a free consultation today. Let our Arizona personal injury lawyers help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
