How To Determine Fault In Distracted Driving Accidents
There are many different types of distracted driving. Here are some examples:
- Talking on a handheld or hands-free cellphone
- Texting while driving
- Surfing the Internet
- Navigating using a cellphone
- Adjusting the music player or car “infotainment” system
- Eating or applying makeup while driving
In California, use of a handheld cellphone and texting while driving are illegal. However, even if the particular form of distraction is not illegal, it can still be a factor in determining liability. Our lawyers often obtain cellphone records to determine if the other driver was using a cellphone in the moments prior to the crash.
Distracted driving accidents are common on freeways when a driver fails to notice that traffic has slowed down. Distracted drivers can also injure pedestrians, bicyclists and other drivers at intersections when they fail to stop at a red light.
