Distracted Driving Claims in Pennsylvania

Philadelphia Distracted Driving Attorney

Nowadays, people hold the world at their fingertips. With the wide variety of technologies that exist, people can access accounts, contact anyone they want, and read about anything they are interested in all while on the road. Although technology can be useful when people are on the go, it is never wise to participate in such activities while behind the wheel. When drivers use their cellphones or participate in any other distracting activities while behind the wheel, they leave themselves and other drivers at risk for serious injuries.

With help from our Philadelphia personal injury attorneys, individuals harmed by distracted drivers may be able to pursue financial compensation for the following:

  • Physical pain
  • Medical costs
  • Physical therapy
  • Life-changing injuries
  • Emotional damages
  • Lost wages

Types of Distracted Driving

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2013, well over 3,000 individuals were killed in distracted driving auto collisions. Many of the distracted drivers were participating in the following activities:

  • Drinking
  • Eating
  • Changing the radio
  • Talking to passengers
  • Watching a movie
  • Using physical or technological maps
  • Talking on the cell phone
  • Talking over a Bluetooth connection
  • Texting

In every distracted driving case, a person is distracted in at least one of the following ways:

  • Cognitively Distracted: This type of distraction occurs when a person’s mind is occupied with activities that distract them from the road.
  • Physically Distracted: This type of distraction occurs when a person’s hands are removed from the steering wheel to participate in other activities while driving.
  • Visually Distracted: This type of distraction occurs when a person’s eyes are not focused on the road and are, instead, focused on another activity.
