Just How Big of a Problem Is Distracted Driving?

Alan Morton
Advocate for Justice/Trial Lawyer

http://www.MortonLawyers.com Distracted driving is a real problem on Idaho roads and roadways throughout our nation. Unfortunately, many car accidents, injuries and even deaths have occurred as a result of inattentive drivers.

Distracted driving occurs when a driver focuses on other activities besides driving. These activities can include texting while driving, operating a cell phone, eating, selecting a radio or satellite station, and even interacting with passengers. In our state alone, there are approximately 15 distracted driving accidents per day that result in an average of 274 deaths annually, according to the Idaho Department of Transportation. Sadly, this statistic is likely low since many crashes occur as a result of inattentive and distracted drivers that aren’t reported. 

If you have been a victim of a negligent driver, you should find out about your rights to a financial recovery. Contact the Morton Law Offices for a free consultation with a skilled trial attorney.
