Tampa Car Accident Lawyers — Distracted Driver Accidents

Driving is a complex task that demands full concentration. An attentive driver anticipates dangers and reacts faster in a crisis. A driver whose attention is divided by a cellphone, passengers, a map or a fast food sandwich is far more likely to cause a crash.

If the negligence of another motorist caused your serious injury accident, that person is responsible for your medical care, financial losses, and pain and suffering. But the other motorist may deny wrongdoing — or point the finger at you. The Tampa personal injury lawyers of Feldman Law Group PA are skilled at proving liability when the other driver denies fault.

The Statistics on Cellphones, Texting and Distracted Driving

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and other published studies:

  • Drivers who are talking or texting on a cellphone while driving are four times more likely to have an injury crash.
  • Cellphone use while driving reduces a driver's reaction time as much as driving drunk.
  • Driving while distracted is a factor in 25 percent of reported collisions.
  • Use of a wireless device (cellphone conversation, text messaging, GPS) is the No. 1 source of driver inattention.

Taking a hand off the wheel or looking away from the road while dialing or texting is only part of the problem. Human factors researchers at Carnegie Mellon University concluded that simply talking on a cellphone — even with eyes straight ahead — reduces the amount of brain activity associated with driving by 37 percent.

Any activity that takes the focus off of driving can be considered negligence: eating, changing the radio station, putting on makeup, reading books or newspapers, turning to talk to a passenger or turning around to discipline the kids in the back seat.
