Distracted driving car accidents are among the most serious types of collisions since drivers seldom have a chance to brake. Worse, these types of accidents have become more common. While phones are a leading cause of such accidents, passengers can also be deadly distractions. In this video, attorney Gene Riddle explains the dangers of distracted driving and how our law firm can help.
We’ve had cases involving auto accidents that happen right outside my window. Where the person was texting while driving, did not see that the car stopped in front of them and plowed into them. Right here at the red light in front of my office. That type of accident can be avoided. And when it comes to young people—I have two young daughters. What makes me more nervous than anything, is when they have passengers in their car who can distract them. Yes, young people, passengers distract you. You keep your focus on the road. Not your passengers. The injuries in accidents involving DWI’s, texting while driving and inattention, sometimes, in fact a lot of times, involve injuries that are very serious. Because, they are a result of high impact. The person that is distracted is traveling at speed limit. They don’t see that they’ve run the red light. They don’t see that they’ve run through an intersection. So, the damages and injuries are serious. Please give us a call. Or, send us an email. We’re here. We’re ready to help. Justice Counts.
