Did Someone’s Distraction Cause Injury?
Distractions are everywhere in today’s world. Screens constantly vie for our attention, with texts, chats, emails and other notifications coming in as frequently as people care to monitor them. While many people can successfully suppress their need to stay connected long enough to drive their cars, some people cannot. Unfortunately, that distraction can often become tragic.

Texting Is Not The Only Culprit
While texting is far and away the most common — and potent — distraction behind the wheel, many other activities can take a driver’s focus off the road. Others we encounter regularly include:
- Entering a location into a GPS
- Talking on a cellphone
- Posting to social media
- Eating, drinking, reaching, applying makeup and other activities that require the use of your hands
- Animated conversation that pulls the driver’s eyes from the road
All these activities can result in disaster. If you suspect that the other party was texting while driving, we will do the research necessary to establish the facts and get them on your side.
A Split Second Is All It Takes
Many people think that looking away for just a moment while driving is not a big deal. However, the truth is that a car can travel the length of a football field in just a few seconds. That is enough to change someone’s life forever.
