Unfocused Drivers Are Dangerous Drivers
Distracted driving is a serious problem in New York and across the country. From smartphones to in-car infotainment systems, there are myriad things to take a driver’s attention from the road. Even a moment of distraction can have devastating consequences, resulting in accidents that leave innocent victims injured and overwhelmed by loss.

Our goal is not only to help you address your immediate concerns, but also your long-term needs as well.
Common Types Of Distracted Driving
The widespread use of smartphones had led to a significant increase in the number of distraction-related motor vehicle collisions. However, it is possible for a driver to be distracted without a phone in his or her hand. The three types of distracted driving include:
- Cognitive distraction
- Manual distraction
- Visual distraction
Distraction can come from anything – from sending a text to adjusting the radio to talking to a passenger in the backseat. Regardless of how or why a driver may be distracted, each person is responsible for the decisions made while behind the wheel. It is possible to hold drivers accountable for negligent actions that caused you harm, and our attorneys can walk you through this entire process.
