Distracted Driving and Having an Auto Injury Lawyer
Distracted driving includes taking your eyes off the road; taking your hands off the steering wheel or letting your mind wander off your primary task of driving.
Performing non-driving activities while behind the wheel puts you at risk of causing an accident. Most people have cellphones or other electronic devices, and using these while driving can pose a serious safety threat. We strongly encourage you to always drive distraction-free, making the roads a safer place. Unfortunately, not everyone does this, and many injuries and deaths happen because of someone’s reckless driving.
If you or your loved one has been killed or injured because of someone else’s distracted driving, contact us as soon as possible so we can help.

Distracted Driving Laws
Yes, but they vary by state and are primarily related to texting and cell phone use. There are two categories of laws: primary law and secondary law. With the primary law, an officer may ticket an offender for a distracted driving violation without any other traffic offense. With the secondary law, an officer may only ticket an offender for distracted driving if the driver has been pulled over for another traffic offense like speeding.
