Driver Inattention Causing Car Accidents

Long Beach Lawyer Advocating for Accident Victims

Many people do not realize how much power they have when they are driving motor vehicles. With one simple act of negligence (failing to use a turn signal, failing to look over one's shoulder, etc.), a driver can end up causing a car accident that completely alters another person's life—or even takes another person's life. This is why it is so important for motorists to pay full attention to what they are doing when they get behind the wheel. When individuals do not have the appropriate level of attention while driving, this is called distracted driving.

Distracted driving occurs in three forms: visual, manual and cognitive. Here are some of the various ways that people can be distracted while they are driving:

  • Talking on the phone
  • Texting while driving
  • Eating or drinking
  • Conversing with passengers
  • Looking at a map
  • Reaching over for an object
  • Adjusting music
  • Simply not focusing on the road
