Driver distraction has become one of the most common causes of car accidents in Detroit and throughout the nation. Next to drunk drivers, distracted drivers pose the most dangerous risk to both themselves and the countless number of people having to share the roads with them. The most common driver distractions and dangerous driving habits include:
- Texting while driving;
- Talking on the phone;
- Adjusting electronic devices such as the radio, air conditioner, CD player or GPS;
- Driving while tired or drowsy;
- Attending to personal grooming;
- Eating or drinking;
- Being distracted by children or pets in the car;
- Trying to find or reaching for items that have dropped; and
- Looking at other people, advertising or objects outside the vehicle.
Any one of these driver distractions are capable of causing a catastrophic accident. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident caused by a distracted driver, you are going to need an attorney you can trust to be an aggressive advocate for your rights.
