Michigan Legal CenterWhen someone steps into a car, they are taking on the responsibility of operating that vehicle safely, while taking care to not cause any harm to the other motorists on the road. Driving a car is a big responsibility which requires focus and a driver’s full attention. However, many people on the road fall short of their responsibility to give their full attention to what is going on around them. These people are engaging in behavior that puts their lives and the lives of those around them at risk. These distracted drivers cause 1 in 5 of the 6 million accidents a year in the United States.

The majority of distracted drivers are not engaging in intentional wrongdoing, but some are taking risks that can end in devastating consequences. Most distracted drivers are trying to multitask while driving. This includes applying makeup, eating at the wheel, attending to children in the back seat, playing with the radio, talking on a cellphone, texting while driving, driving under the influence of a mind altering substance and other activities which takes their attention away from concentrating on only driving safely.

Distracted drivers engage in dangerous behavior, which can result in terrible car accidents. The consequences of a car accident, caused by a distracted driver, can result in minor damages to other cars to the tragic deaths of those involved in a car accident.

The consequences of a car accident, caused by a distracted driver, can have a lasting impact on other innocent drivers and their families.

If a distracted driver causes an accident, which results in damages to another driver’s vehicle, that person must have their property repaired or replaced. Car repairs or replacement can be quite expensive. Most people have insurance to help cover the costs of an accident, but even paying deductibles may cause financial stress to someone working hard just to get by.

If a distracted driver causes an accident, which results in an injury to another driver or passengers, those injuries will require medical attention, no matter how minor or severe. Medical bills can add up quickly, being very costly. If those injuries are serious or permanent, they will have a lasting physical effect on victims and their families. If a distracted driver causes an accident, which results in a tragic death, it could destroy a family and change their lives forever.

When distracted drivers engage in behavior which causes a car accident that could have been avoided had they been focused on safely operating their vehicle, these drivers should be held accountable for their wrongdoing. A car accident lawyer can help victims of distracted drivers in Michigan recover compensation from those who caused the accident in which they were involved in.
