Distracted Driving

DISTRACTED DRIVING CAN BE DANGEROUS 

When it comes to driving, there are few things that are more dangerous than not paying attention. A driver who doesn't have their eyes on the road can cause a disaster in less than a second. This is why any sort of distracted driving is something that needs to be taken extremely seriously. Taking even a short moment to look at something else means that a driver may miss someone changing lanes, an animal darting into the road, or even a pedestrian or bicyclist in front of them. This means that distracted driving can have deadly results. 

There are dozens of things that can cause distracted driving, even if you do them often. These can include: 

  • Talking on the Phone
  • Texting
  • Using Social Media
  • Using an App
  • Using Social Media
  • Eating
  • Drinking
  • Reading
  • Using A GPS
  • Using the Radio/Music Player
  • Talking With Passengers
  • Disciplining Children
  • Brushing Your Hair
  • Putting On Makeup
  • Watching A Video
  • Looking at an Accident
  • Looking at a Traffic Stop

 

 Regardless of the distraction, your first few steps after a crash should always be to report the accident and to call for medical assistance. Most people believe that the next step should be to call the insurance company, but if you have been injured you should Wayne Hardee. 

Calling an attorney may seem extreme, but it is an important part of the process. This is because many insurance companies will try to offer a lump sum settlement in severe injury cases which may hinder your ability to get the compensation that you truly deserve. 

It is also more important in North Carolina than it may be in other states due to the fact that we have what is called ‚ÄúContributory Negligence‚ÄĚ, which prevents people from receiving compensation for their injuries if it is ruled that they hold any fault for an accident. You need a good lawyer on your side to ensure that you are given what you deserve, you need Wayne Hardee so call 252-238-4040 or come to our office at 1609 West Arlington Blvd in Greenville to see how we can help you today!
