The Growing Problem of Distracted Drivers

Car Crash

West Palm Beach car accident attorney Jessica Mishali vigorously defends the rights of individuals injured in auto accidents caused by distracted drivers. This is a problem that has escalated dramatically with the advent of cell phones, but has really existed in its many variations since automobiles were first introduced.

Many Distractions

The distractions drivers face are many. Holding a conversation or yelling at the kids can lead to a parent looking away from traffic at a critical moment. A live ash dropped from a cigarette onto a driver’s leg or car upholstery will almost undoubtedly cause him to be distracted from the road before him. In the workplace, the number one cause of injury and death is distracted driving (U.S. Department of Transportation).

Today’s frenetic pace is most certainly a contributor to driver distraction as well. Drivers race to get to the office or to school, often holding breakfast in one hand and a cell phone in the other while attempting to steer with one knee. This is a recipe for disaster, and disaster it certainly can be.

Texting and Driving

If you are injured by a distracted driver these days, the chances are strong that a cell phone was involved. You would do well to call personal injury lawyer Jessica Mishali for assistance, for this is among the most needless and prevalent of injury accidents. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration suggests that the risk of a car crash is 23 times greater when a driver is texting. Surprisingly, Florida is one of the few states that do not have a law in place restricting cell phone use while driving.

The Grim Statistics

If you are injured by a distracted driver, personal injury lawyer Jessica Mishali may be able to help, but be assured you are not alone. The U.S. DOT estimates that distracted driving is responsible for 20% of all automobile accidents nationwide. In 2010 distracted drivers were the leading factor in 416,000 injuries and 3,092 deaths. In Florida, over 25,000 car crashes per year are the result of distracted drivers (Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles).
