What does it mean to be distracted while driving?
It may surprise many people to learn that simple tasks can be extremely distracting while on the road. Some of these distractions are:
- Plugging an address into your phone or GPS
- Applying makeup
- Talking with passengers
- Looking at objects or accidents on the side of the road
- Adjusting the AC or radio dial
- Reaching for something in the passenger seat or backseat
A distraction is not something that only uses your hands. Instead, it will also require some level of cognitive distraction as well. A person who is distracted may go on autopilot and not see you when you are on the road. Our Maryland distracted driving accident attorney understands how dangerous this can be.
What happens if I think the person who hit me was distracted while driving?
One of the first things you should do when you believe that someone was distracted while driving is to let your attorney know. It is important that you do not point fingers while at the accident scene or get angry. There is time to discuss this with your attorney. Your attorney will be working to show that the other driver owed you a duty of care and safety while on the road and that they did not uphold this duty because they chose to be distracted and negligent.
What if their insurance denies our claim?
It is not unheard of for an insurance company to dismiss your claim or offer a very low settlement and this is one of the reasons you want an attorney you can trust on your side. We will work to provide the evidence necessary to prove your claim or take them to court.
