Distracted Driving Lawyers

Injured because of a distracted driver?

When an inattentive and distracted driver gets behind the wheel of a car, the consequences can be devastating. If a driver was texting, looking at their GPS, applying makeup or some other form of distraction at the time of the accident, and you or a loved one were injured, you may have the right to seek financial compensation. Contact the distracted driving lawyers at McDonald Law Firm to receive aggressive legal representation when you need it most.

Distracted Driving Continues to Increase

When a driver engages in any non-driving activity that takes his or her attention away from the road, they are engaging in distracted driving. Distracted driving, while 100% preventable, endangers the lives of passengers, other drivers and pedestrians. When driving at 55 mph, taking your eyes off the road for just five seconds is like driving the length of a football field with your eyes closed.

Texting While Driving

In 2017, all drivers should know the dangers that texting while driving poses. Texting while driving falls under all three types of distracted driving, making it extremely dangerous, and in some instances deadly. In many states, not only is it dangerous, it’s illegal. For a full list of cellular phone use and texting while driving laws by state, visit the National Conference of State Legislatures.
