Distracted drivers are the biggest danger most of us face when we get behind the wheel. Almost anything can become a distraction, and anything that takes a driver’s focus away from the road can be deadly. A split second of inattention can lead to serious crashes and catastrophic injuries. When distractions are combined with excessive speeds, the consequences are often fatal.

If you believe your crash was caused by a distracted driver, please know you are not alone and you have options available to you. Before you accept an insurance settlement or sign anything, contact a Denver car accident attorney at the Tenge Law Firm, LLC, and sit down to discuss your case. We’ll look for the maximum compensation to cover all your injuries and losses, even the emotional ones. And if we represent you, you pay no fee to us until after you’ve recovered money from the at-fault.

Distractions Are Dangerous

When people get behind the wheel of a car, truck, or SUV, they assume an awesome responsibility. When you’re driving, you have direct control over thousands of pounds of machinery, which can travel much faster than most people can fully appreciate. Being able to react quickly is essential to safely operating a vehicle, and anything that takes away your reaction time is a serious danger to everyone on the road.

When a driver is distracted, he takes his eyes, hands, or focus away from the vehicle and the road beyond it. It becomes harder to see what is happening and react in an appropriate way. And yet, distracted driving is incredibly common in Denver.

Common Distractions for Drivers

We often think of mobile phones as the biggest distraction for drivers, and they are. However, the main cause of distraction for drivers involved in fatal collisions, based on insurance company data, is daydreaming or becoming “lost in thought.” Mobile phones were the second biggest distraction, yet five times as many deadly collisions were caused by daydreaming.

The third biggest source of distraction in fatal accidents was people, objects, or events outside the vehicle. Fourth was other occupants within the vehicle. Talking with a passenger can be a major distraction, especially for young and inexperienced drivers. It doesn’t matter what kind of distraction the at-fault driver was engaged in – talking, eating, putting on makeup, or flipping through a Spotify playlist – he or she is still responsible for paying for the damages caused by the wreck.

Consequences of Distracted Driving

Collisions involving distracted drivers can be extremely destructive. Since a distracted driver might not even be looking at the road, he might not try to brake or swerve to avoid a collision, and strike another vehicle or pedestrian at high speeds.

In a crash with a distracted driver, people may suffer:

If a distracted driver does hit a pedestrian or bicyclist, who lacks the protection of a vehicle, the results are more likely to be tragic.
