Hit by a distracted driver? Get help today

Car crashes are something most people try actively to avoid. They work hard to make sure their vehicles are in good condition and that they don't have distractions that are keeping them from focusing on the road.

Not all people think that way, though. Some are happy trying to send texts on a highway, drinking alcohol before heading home or eating while trying to merge into traffic. These distractions and impairments make it much more likely that those drivers will get into an accident.

By removing distractions, you could save lives

Removing distractions from your surroundings is a great way to become a better driver. Some common distractions include:

  • Answering your phone
  • Texting
  • Eating behind the wheel
  • Conversations inside the vehicle
  • Entering GPS coordinates

Of course, it's usually an impossibility to stop all distractions, but removing as many as possible from your vehicle will help.

Pay attention to your surroundings, and you could prevent a crash

Although it's possible that you could be hit by someone else, paying attention to what's going on around you could help you avoid a crash. For example, if you see someone heading toward you out of the corner of your eye, you may be able to put on your brakes or speed up to get out of the way. If you're looking down at a text, you may never see them coming.
