Prince Georges County Accident Lawyer Asks: Are You the Victim of a Distracted Driver?

According to a recent study conducted by Safe Start, approximately 25 percent of fatal motor vehicle crashes are caused by some type of driver distraction or inattention. This is when the driver’s mind or eyes are not completely focused on the road ahead. Unfortunately, it only takes a driver not paying attention for a few seconds to cause serious injury or even death to someone else. If you have lost a family member to a distracted driver or are recovering from serious injuries yourself, Prince Georges County Accident Lawyer John Critzos, II is available to take your case.

Top Causes of Driver Inattention

Although cell phone use while driving gets a lot of attention, it might surprise you to learn that it only accounted for 12 percent of the fatal accidents in Safe Start’s study. However, a whopping 62 percent of the crashes in the study occurred due to the driver’s mind wandering or being lost in his or her own thoughts. Other common causes, with occurrence rates between one and seven percent, included smoking, eating, drinking, adjusting the radio or climate controls, speaking to other occupants in the vehicle, and looking at something outside of the vehicle.

You’re Entitled to Fair Compensation

As the accident victim, how it happened doesn’t matter nearly as much as getting the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. You may be dealing with lost wages, medical bills, damage to your vehicle, and several other costs due to the inattentiveness of the other driver. John Critzos, II will present evidence in your case to demonstrate his or her fault while fighting for a fair settlement on your behalf. Please contact us at 844-Take-MyCase or visit our website at www.844TakeMyCase.com to learn more about how he can help you receive a settlement that considers your best interests and not just those of the insurance company.
