Louisville, KY Distracted Driver Accident Lawyer

Consider the distractions that the modern driver faces: billboards, radio, iPod podcasts, incoming text messages, tweets and Facebook updates, passengers gabbing, disruptive internal thoughts, fatigue, information overload…and that’s just the beginning. Human beings are gaining more distractions every day, and the cost is simply too high. At worst, distraction takes lives when it occurs behind the wheel. With the help of an experienced Louisville, KY distracted driver accident lawyer, however, we may be able to stop distracted driving once and for all.

The Catastrophic Toll of Distraction Behind the Wheel

Unfortunately, all of this distraction behind the wheel is taking a terrible toll. One study found that drivers who text message while driving are actually worse drivers than motorists who drive DUI (blood alcohol concentration of 0.08%). That should send a chill up anyone’s spine, considering how many drivers text message and talk on cell phones. And these dangerous practices continue, even after study after study has demonstrated that distraction leads to decreased performance behind the wheel and increased risk of injuries and accidents.

Don't wait. We're ready to fight.

Texting Bans Don’t Work, So What Will?

Legislators responded to America’s great distracted driving epidemic by enacting a series of laws designed to punish drivers who text or chat on their cell phones. In 2010, Kentucky became the 22nd state to outlaw texting while driving and, as of May 2011, 32 states and several territories had banned texting while driving, for instance.

Unfortunately and amazingly, a variety of independent analyses, conducted by reputable government traffic safety groups, have suggested that these initial efforts have done precious little good at reducing accident rates. As a result, concerned public safety officials are searching vigorously for alternative solutions. How can we put an end to the distracted driving epidemic without impinging unnecessarily on people’s freedoms?

This question is obviously important, and it is not easily resolved. But if you have been a victim in a distracted driving accident, you may face real and practical challenges in terms of collecting compensation for your car accident injuries, lost work wages, damages to your vehicle, and so forth.

Identifying the Root Causes of Your Distracted Accident Crash
