Distracted Driving Accidents: Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable

Distracted driving plays a substantial role in the occurrence of car accidents not only in California, including Los Angeles, but also in various regions throughout the United States. When drivers take their eyes off the road or their hands off the wheel to engage in different activities, they put themselves and others at risk of severe injury or death.

So, if you’ve been injured in a distracted driving accident, Sheena Rude is here to help you seek justice and hold the negligent drivers accountable for their actions. Call LAW OFFICES OF SHEENA RUDE today at 818-658-3700 or 408-676-0410 to discuss your case.

Understanding Distracted Driving

Distracted driving usually occurs when a driver’s attention is diverted away from driving, increasing the likelihood of a car accident. Typical forms of distraction include:

  • Texting or Using a Cell Phone: Texting, making phone calls or browsing social media, while driving can take a driver’s eyes, hands, and attention away from the road, leading to dangerous consequences.
  • Eating or Drinking: Consuming food or beverages while driving can cause distractions and impair a driver’s ability to respond timely to changing traffic conditions.
  • Grooming: Generally activities such as applying makeup, shaving, or adjusting hair can divert a driver’s attention from the road and increase the risk of a collision.
  • Using In-Car Technology: Adjusting radio controls, GPS devices, or other in-car technology can distract a driver and cause him or her to lose focus on the road ahead.

If your injuries are not extensive and you are not in a need of medical care, you should take photos of the accident scene, gather witness information as well as the contact information of the responsible party.

The Consequences of Distracted Driving Accidents

Distracted driving accidents can cause serious injuries, including:

  • Whiplash and Neck Injuries: Rear-end collisions caused by distracted drivers can lead to whiplash and other neck injuries, causing pain and limited mobility.
  • Broken Bones: Sometimes the impact of a car accident can cause fractures and broken bones, requiring medical treatment and rehabilitation.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries: Head injuries sustained in car accidents can result in TBIs traumatic brain injuries, causing cognitive impairments, memory loss, and other neurological symptoms.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Severe accidents can cause severe spinal cord injuries, resulting in complete paralysis or loss of sensations in the affected or injured regions of the body.
