Miami Distracted Driving Accidents Attorney
There are few things as frustrating as being involved in a car accident, especially when it could have been easily avoided if the other driver had been paying attention to the road. Distracted driving is on the rise throughout the country due to the advent of smart phones, GPS systems, and smarter cars which require all-hands on to figure out how to work the computer system. It seems that as technology increases, the incidence of car accidents caused by technology correspondingly increases at the same rate.

Distracted driving has long been a cause of car accidents since the advent of the motor vehicle. However, while distracted driving used to be caused by other passengers, eating in the car, or applying makeup, distracted driving is now more common than ever. It is routine now to see a person next to you on their smart phone while driving – a fact which leads to dangerous driving scenarios. Studies now indicate that distracted driving is often more dangerous than driving while under the influence. The reaction time it takes to look up to the road from your smart phone is often enough to cause devastating injuries to a pedestrian, bicyclist, motorcyclist, or other driver.
Florida legislators recently tried to combat the rising number of accidents caused by distracted driving and cell phone use, by prohibiting texting while driving. While this has decreased the number of accidents slightly, distracted driving continues to be a large problem for all drivers on the roadways.
Florida Accident Recovery
As the victim of a distracted driving accident, you are entitled to bring a claim for damages against the responsible party. Your claim may include the following:
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitation expense
- Lost wages
- Future earnings
- Pain and suffering
Distracted driving accidents are often severe since they involve a driver who was unable to mitigate the severity of the accident. The failure of a driver to sense the impending accident can lead to a devastating aftermath. The failure to spot a bicyclist or pedestrian until the driver hits them will have a tragic impact on these victims. While other drivers on the road have more protection from distracted drivers, the results can be equally devastating. It is therefore important to ensure the distracted drivers are held accountable for their actions. A personal injury attorney can assist you in determining the full amount of damages you are entitled to receive as a result of your injuries.
