Car Accidents and Distracted Driving

One of the leading causes of car accidents in California, and throughout the entire United States, is distracted driving. Drivers can be distracted for any number of reasons including talking on a cell phone, texting, eating, attending to personal hygiene, adjusting the car stereo, using a GPS device, reaching for an object in the vehicle, daydreaming, talking or paying attention to passengers in the vehicle and more. A study from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows that close to 80% of all crashes are caused by some sort of driver distraction and most of those distractions occur within three seconds of the point of impact.

In car accident cases it can sometimes be difficult to prove who was at fault or that distracted driving played a key role in causing the accident. Determining liability is essential when it comes to these types of cases.
