Most Common Distractions While Driving

Distracted driving is one of the most common causes of car accidents and commercial truck collisons; driving while distracted equates to a driver taking their eyes off the road for an estimated 4.6 seconds.

Accidents happen suddenly, and are more likely to occur if distracted driving is involved. With a driver’s eyes off the road, even for a second, this could lead to an otherwise preventable rollover, sideswipe, or pedestrian accident.

The most common distractions reported in Missouri distracted driving accident claims include:

  • Texting and driving
  • Fiddling with the radio or GPS
  • Talking on the phone
  • Grooming or only using one hand on the wheel
  • Distractions from other passengers in the vehicle
  • Driving while fatigued

If you were injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver, it’s essential to stay calm, call the police, and consult a St. Louis Car Accident Lawyer about your rights as a Missouri resident to sue the at-fault driver for damages.

Missouri Distracted Driving Laws

Texting and driving is one of the leading causes of St. Louis car accident fatalities, but currently, it is only illegal for drivers under the age of 17 to text while driving. However, if someone causes injury to another person, under Missouri injury laws, while you can’t sue a driver over 17 for distracted driving, if other forms of negligence, such as speeding or driving under the influence are present, you could recover damages with a Missouri personal injury claim.

Most distracted driving accident claims in Missouri are eligible to recover some form of damages, but the best way to increase your chances of recovering full compensation for your harm and losses is to hire a St. Louis Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer. Without an experienced attorney on your side with knowledge of Missouri’s traffic laws and injury statute, you risk possibly recovering a lower or reduced settlement from the other party’s insurance company. With an attorney representing your case, you could recover full compensation for medical expenses, mental and emotional distress, lost wages, personal property damage, and other expenses that stemmed from the accident.

Consult Our St. Louis Distracted Driving Lawyers Today

If you are thinking about suing the distracted driver at-fault in an accident, you need to consult the Dixon Injury Firm right away. Our St. Louis Distracted Driving Accident Attorneys can protect you during this challenging time, gather detailed evidence from the accident, and develop a personalized claim for your situation.

Christopher Dixon is a nationally-recognized “Top 100 Trial Lawyer,” a Lifetime Member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and has recovered over $35,000,000 in settlements for injury claims in Missouri and Illinois. Chris Dixon takes the time to get to know each clients’ situation to better serve their case and isn’t afraid to push back against the other party’s insurer to demand justice and compensation for your case.
