Distracted Driving Car Accidents
Austin Injury Lawyers Seeking Justice for Auto Accident Victims
One of the most basic aspects of being a safe driver is paying attention to the road. Unfortunately, many drivers still choose to drive with distractions, either because they think they are good enough drivers to handle them or because they don’t realize that what they are doing is against the law. Regardless, distracted drivers cause thousands of preventable accidents each year resulting in injury and death to innocent people.
Examples of common driver distractions include:
- Texting or emailing
- Eating and drinking
- Staring at GPS devices
- Applying makeup
- Reaching for fallen objects
- Voice-activated infotainment systems

Texting & Driving is Illegal in Texas
Among the most common and dangerous forms of driver distraction is texting while driving. Texting is distracting in a number of ways. Cognitively, texting takes your mind off the road. Texting is also visual and manual distraction, drawing the eyes away from the road and the hands away from the task of safe steering. Together, these distractions make a crash up to 23 times more likely. This behavior is a big problem among teenage drivers, but any driver with a cell phone is susceptible to an accident when they choose to ignore the law.
