Distracted Driving Is Dangerous Driving
Mobile phones have completely changed our lives. Having the power of countless applications and access to high-speed internet access means that we can stay connected with our jobs, our families and our friends from virtually anywhere. What many people fail to realize is that it is our duty to use this convenience in a responsible way, and not put ourselves or others at risk by being distracted by our mobile devices.
Korshak & Associates represents people who have been injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by a distracted driver. Someone who is texting while driving or otherwise devoting attention to their phone instead of traffic can be just as dangerous as someone who has been drinking. Our distracted driving lawyers will stand up for your rights when you’ve been injured by someone who is not paying attention to the very important task at hand — driving a car, truck or other vehicle.
It Doesn’t Take Much To Cause An Accident
People are so accustomed to using their phones while performing other activities that it may seem inconsequential to read a text message or type out an email while driving down a quiet street or speeding along on the freeway. However, a driver who takes their eyes off the road to look down at a phone for even just a moment is more dangerous and more likely to get into an accident than someone who is not compromised in this manner.
