The dangers of using a cell phone while driving is in the news a lot and is the subject of many new laws and public service campaigns - and with good reason. As an Alpharetta car crash attorney, I've seen the traumatic injuries and devastated families created by distracted driving cell phone accidents. However, cell phones are not the only source of distraction.

Other Driving Distractions Can be Just as Deadly

In our effort to combat cell phone use and texting while driving, we should remember that there are other forms of distracted driving that can result in the same types of accidents, injuries and fatalities. For example, all drivers should be aware of the dangers of:
  • Listening to music too loudly
  • Having too many passengers in the car
  • Eating and driving
  • Taking a hand off the wheel to reach into the passenger seat or backseat
  • Arguing with a passenger

The Bottom Line is That ALL Distracted Driving is Dangerous

If you have been hurt, or if you have lost a loved one, because of any type of distracted driving behavior, then you may be entitled to damages for your injuries or loss.
