Distracted driving has been a major cause of car accidents in Texas and around the country. Any diversion of a driver’s focus from driving his vehicle is referred to as “distraction.” If you incur damages in a car accident caused by a distracted driver, you may be entitled to compensation for medical costs, pain, and suffering, emotional distress, lost earnings, future expenses, etc.

Distracted driving refers to driving when your mind, eyes, or hands are occupied with something else. There are three main categories of distracted driving, including:
Some distracted driving behaviors can be mundane tasks that seemingly everyone does while behind the wheel. Changing your music or conversing with other passengers, for instance. On the other hand, texting while driving, for example, is clearly risky and even illegal.
The most concerning aspect of distracted driving accidents is how easily you can avoid them. It’s tempting to believe that you’ve figured out how to drive when distracted, but statistics show that this isn’t the case.
If you understand the risks of driving when distracted and how to avoid them, you’ll have a much better chance of having a successful road experience. All in all, you don’t have any influence over other drivers who are driving when distracted.
If you’ve been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s lack of attention, you might be entitled to compensation. You can reach an agreement in some situations because the at-fault driver admits fault and his insurance provider acts responsibly. If not, you’ll have to go to court.
