Distracted Driving Accidents

Were you injured due to someone else's negligence?

Distracted driving causes more than one million car accidents in North America every year. Every second a driver takes their eyes off the road, they are putting themselves and other drivers at risk. Distracted driving is unsafe, irresponsible, and can cause injuries to all those involved. If you were injured because of another driver's inattentiveness, it is imperative you hold them accountable.

At Meyerkord & Meyerkord, we strive to assist every victim who seeks our help. We are aware of how painful and stressful car accidents can be, as well as how difficult it can be to understand your rights as a car accident victim. Our attorneys have more than 100 years of combined experience and have helped dozens of Illinois residents successfully obtain monetary compensation.

What causes distracted driving accidents?

Many situations are considered driving distracted. It can be any activity that diverts a driver's attention away from the road-even if it is for a few seconds. Any type of distraction can put other drivers, passengers, and bystanders at risk.

The most common forms of distracted driving include:

  • Texting
  • Adjusting a Radio / iPod / CD Player
  • Grooming
  • Using a Cellphone or Smartphone
  • Watching a Video
  • Reading
  • Using a Navigation System
  • Eating and Drinking
  • Talking to Passengers

While texting and driving is the most common type of distracted driving, it is not the only action that causes such accidents. No matter what type of distracted driving caused your injuries, you deserve to hold the at-fault driver responsible for their actions. Let our firm help in the pursuit of justice.
