Why Is Distracted Driving So Dangerous?

Many drivers are unaware of the significant danger posed by distracted driving. Even one second of inattentiveness can have serious or fatal consequences for bikers, pedestrians and other motorists. Distraction comes in many forms, and they can affect the driver in different ways. Types of distraction include:

  • Cognitive distraction
  • Manual distraction
  • Visual distraction

Cellphone use while driving is particularly dangerous because it affects a driver's eyes, hands and mind. As a victim, you may believe there is little you can do to prove that a driver was distracted when he or she caused your accident, but we can help. Our lawyers thoroughly investigate each accident case, and if you suspect distraction, we will secure cellphone records to determine exactly what happened.

Regardless of why or how a person was distracted at the time of your accident, you are entitled to hold liable parties accountable to the fullest extent of the law. Our attorneys Wade C. Hoyt III and Wade C. Hoyt IV have secured numerous multimillion-dollar settlements for our clients, and we will serve as the aggressive legal advocates necessary to navigate the personal injury claims process.
