Drivers encounter a number of potential dangers on the road each day. Many of these dangers are easily avoided by practicing safe driving habits. Some hazards can arise with only a moment's warning, which is why driving requires a person's undivided attention.

What is considered distracted driving?

Anything that interferes with a driver's ability to obey traffic laws and drive their vehicle may be considered distracted driving. Some of the most common instances of distracted driving involve people using their hands for other tasks, or taking their eyes off the road to try and concentrate on something else.

Handling materials while also maintaining control of a vehicle can be difficult, such as when eating or drinking. Generally, anything that does not allow a person to have both hands on the steering wheel or diverts their eyes away from the road may contribute to driver distraction.

Texting While Driving is Distracted Driving

Smartphones present many potential distractions for drivers. Phone calls and text messages can divert a person's hands and eyes away from the road.

Some drivers believe it is harmless to answer a phone call or view and respond to text messages while driving because they only look at the phone for a moment—but it only takes a second for a hazard to appear on the road. An accident can occur in the brief window of time it takes to look away from the road and pick up a phone.

Holding Distracted Drivers Accountable

Distracted driving is negligent driving. Drivers are responsible for remaining alert at all times on the road. When their inattentiveness contributes to a car accident, those drivers may be held accountable for their actions. However, in order to hold them responsible, you must be able to demonstrate that they were being negligent, and that it contributed to the accident.

One of the ways our Houston distracted driving accident attorney helps clients is be reviewing the incident and reconstructing the accident. By recreating the events of the accident, you may be able to show a court that the driver's negligent behavior caused the accident that resulted in your injuries. This is especially important when you are seeking compensation your loss and expenses.
