Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of auto accidents nationwide. Nowadays, adolescents are not the only drivers likely to be distracted by loud music, phone calls, or texting.
Texting and driving has become a serious issue in more recent years as people are becoming far more attached to electronic devices.
In 2015 alone, statistics show that 15,574 auto collisions in Colorado were related to distracted driving. In Colorado, there has been a steady increase in distracted driving related fatalities. From 2014 to 2015, the number of distracted driving related fatalities increased 13 percent.
Specifically, texting while driving makes it increasingly difficult for drivers to maintain proper focus on the road and to steer clear of other drivers. Many recent studies show that texting while driving leads to more accidents than driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
If you were injured in an accident with a driver who you believe may have been texting while driving, Jennifer Donaldson of Law Office of Jennifer L. Donaldson is here to help you.
