Five Reasons To Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer

Seeking The Maximum Compensation Possible After A Distracted Driving Accident

Whether you are driving on a highway, city streets or county roads, you are nearly always at risk for a vehicle collision. Unfortunately, a significant number of these collisions throughout the state are the direct result of driver negligence and distracted driving.

With more than 25 years of legal experience, attorney Donald Bedell is prepared to represent clients in serious personal injury cases. With offices in Brick and Toms River, our firm stands ready to represent New Jersey clients injured in distracted driving accidents.

Common Reasons For Distracted Driving

The list of driving distractions grows with each technological advance.

Historically, distractions have included:

  • Reading
  • Eating
  • Personal grooming
  • Talking to passengers
  • Talking on a cellphone
  • Texting
  • Reading or responding to email
  • Manipulating a navigation system

Any activity that takes attention away from the road can result in serious collisions. Many studies categorize distractions in three ways:

  • Manual distraction: Any action that removes a driver’s hands or feet from control elements of the vehicle
  • Visual distraction: Any action that involves the driver looking away from the road to another person or object
  • Cognitive distraction: Any action that causes the driver to stop thinking about the act of driving

If you were injured due to the negligence of a distracted driver, schedule a free consultation with a skilled personal injury lawyer.
