Texting Isn’t The Only Type Of Distracted Driving
Texting is the most common form of distracted driving, but there are types of distracted driving that can take a driver’s focus off the road just long enough for a collision to occur.
Other forms of distracted driving include:
- Dialing numbers on a handheld cellphone
- Surfing the internet on the phone
- Getting directions from a GPS device
- Changing screens on the car’s infotainment system
- Talking with passengers in the car
- Reprimanding children in the car’s backseat
- Drinking or eating
- Applying makeup or changing clothes
Although New York prohibits using a handheld cellphone while driving, many drivers ignore this driving restriction. If you believe that your accident was caused by a distracted driver, our lawyer will study the circumstances leading up to your crash and design an effective strategy that gets results.
Whether you are challenging the at-fault driver in court or have received a low payout offer from your insurance provider, we are ready to assist you with your claim. With over 35 years of personal injury experience, attorney Sacks knows how to use the law for your benefit.
