Accidents Caused by Distracted Driving

DISTRACTED DRIVING ACCIDENT LAWYERS IN EAGAN

Distracted driving spreads across almost all drivers on the road. Incident rates are higher among texting while driving teenagers and sleep-deprived truck drivers, but severe accidents on the road may also be caused by eating, talking to passengers, checking email, looking at a GPS, shaving, putting on makeup, looking at billboards and just driving inattentively.

Each year, about 25 percent of vehicle crashes in Minnesota are the result of distracted driving, according to the Minnesota Highway Patrol. From 2008 to 2010, 208 deaths and nearly 26,000 injuries were attributed to distracted driving. The problem is worse nationally. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 5,474 deaths and about 448,000 injuries we caused by distracted drivers.

ST. PAUL CELLPHONE ACCIDENTS ATTORNEYS

Minnesota law bans drivers from reading, composing, texting, emailing and accessing the Web on a wireless device while the vehicle is in motion, at a stoplight or stuck in traffic. Drivers under the age of 18 are banned from using cellphones at any time, and school bus drivers are banned from using cellphones for personal reasons.

Even though Minnesota is a No-Fault insurance state, personal injury insurance compensation is not automatic. It is very important to seek professional consultation and representation from an experienced attorney whose legal practice is focused on pursuing personal injury claims.
