Setting Things Right After A Distracted Driving Crash
Distracted driving is a national crisis. Despite laws that seek to limit distractions, drivers in Wisconsin and across the country continue to disregard the safety of their passengers, themselves and others on the road. If you have been injured in a crash with a distracted driver, you may be able to collect substantial compensation. The attorneys of Bollenbeck Fyfe, S.C., have been helping victims of distracted drivers obtain maximum compensation since 1953. We will help you build a powerful case against the driver and get fair treatment from their insurance company.
How Distracted Driving Crashes Happen
Studies have repeatedly proven that driving while also using a device or another object greatly increases the chances of an accident. In fact, the effects of distraction on a motorist’s ability to drive safely are similar to drinking and driving. Things that drivers often let themselves get distracted by include:
- Cellphones – talking, texting and using apps
- Makeup and grooming
- Food and drink
- Radio/music system
- Noisy passengers
When a driver splits their focus between the road and something else, they cannot react as quickly to changing road conditions. Therefore, they are more likely to cause a variety of dangerous wrecks, such as:
- Rear-end collisions
- Head-on collisions
- T-bone crashes
- Rollover accidents
