Philadelphia Distracted Driver Accident Lawyer
Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of motor vehicle accidents, and may even contribute to a significant amount of Philadelphia hit & run accidents. There are three forms of distracted driving: visual, manual, and cognitive distraction. Visual distraction involves taking one’s eyes off the road for some reason. Manual distraction involves removing one or both hands from the steering wheel to perform non-driving tasks. This includes talking or texting on a cell phone or adjusting a radio. Finally, cognitive distraction involves taking one’s mind and focus off of the immediate task of driving and thinking about something else, such as planning for the rest of the day.
All three forms of distracted driving are dangerous and pose serious threats to other drivers on the road. Every day throughout the United States, more than 9 people are killed and more than 1,100 are injured in car crashes involving distracted driving.
