He can make sure drivers will be held liable for unsafe behaviors, and he will work to help accident victims receive the full compensation they deserve.

Common Forms of Distracted Driving That Can Lead to Car Accidents

In the modern world, people have busy lives, and they have constant demands on their attention. As they address these demands, many people believe they can multitask and complete two or more activities at the same time. However, when a person divides their attention between multiple tasks, they will be unable to fully focus on important details and actions that will allow them to complete these tasks effectively. Multitasking while driving is likely to cause a person to miss important details or be unable to respond to new information quickly. This can greatly increase the chances that a person will be involved in a car accident, and they may cause serious injuries to others in a collision.

Drivers may be distracted by any of the following:

  • Cell phone usage
  • Texting
  • Adjusting a car's radio
  • Looking at a map or another paper object, such as a note or newspaper
  • Looking at a navigation device such as a GPS system
  • Eating and drinking
  • Grooming
  • Crying children
  • Intervening in an argument in the back seat
  • Engaging in conversation with a passenger
  • Sightseeing
  • looking at unusual occurrences, things, or people outside the car

When pursuing compensation following an accident caused by distracted driving, proving that a person was not fully paying attention to the road can sometimes be difficult. An experienced personal injury lawyer is a valuable ally who can gather evidence of driver negligence, such as cell phone records, security camera footage, or testimony from witnesses. Attorney John Garvey will work to obtain the compensation needed to pay for medical treatment, rehabilitation, lost wage replacement, and financial consideration for pain and suffering endured by an accident victim.
