What Is Considered Distracted Driving?

Distracted driving refers to any activity that diverts a driver's attention away from the primary task of driving. Common forms of distracted driving include texting, talking on the phone, eating, adjusting the radio, or engaging in any activity that takes attention away from the road. In Reno, NV, and across the nation, distracted driving has become a leading cause of accidents, posing a significant risk to public safety.

Injuries Distracted Driving Victims Often Suffer

The consequences of distracted driving can be severe, leading to a range of injuries, including:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): High-impact collisions resulting from distracted driving can cause traumatic brain injuries, affecting cognitive function and long-term well-being.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Distracted driving accidents may lead to spinal cord injuries, causing paralysis or significant impairments.
  • Broken Bones and Fractures: The force of a collision can result in broken bones and fractures, requiring extensive medical treatment.
  • Psychological Trauma: Victims may experience anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to the emotional impact of the accident.

Who Can Be Held Liable for Distracted Driving Crashes?

The driver who caused the accident may be held liable for your injuries. However, other parties may also be liable, such as:

  • The employer of the person driving if they were on the job at the time of the accident
  • The manufacturer of the vehicle if a defect contributed to the accident
  • The establishment that served alcohol to the driver if they were visibly intoxicated at the time
