April 2012: National Distracted Driving Awareness Month

The month of April has been officially recognized as National Distracted Driving Awareness Month by government officials at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). As the agency's slogan attests, "One text or call could wreck it all." Time and again, this has proven to be the case for too many unfortunate victims throughout the country, and Texas is no exception. Therefore, taking part in the attention being paid to the problems imposed by distracted driving could help you avoid being injured in an accident of this nature in the future.

As defined by NHTSA, distracted driving is any type of activity that has the potential of diverting a driver's attention away from the road, which is the only place it should be. Distractions of every nature are dangerous to drivers, passengers, bystanders, and other drivers on the road. Therefore, these are behaviors that should be avoided at all costs and in every circumstance. Among the most frequently violated versions of distracted driving are: texting while driving, eating or drinking while driving, grooming while driving, talking to passengers while driving, using a navigation system while driving, and adjusting a radio or media device of some sort while driving.

You could be the most precautious and law-abiding driver and still fall victim to an injury or fatality accident at the hands of another. On a daily basis, drivers on the road engage in one or more of the behaviors listed above as they attempt to operate a vehicle. Very often, this ends detrimentally for all involved. If you were injured in a car accident that was caused by distracted driver then you may be legally entitled to compensation and a Lubbock personal injury lawyer from our attorney can help you make this determination. After an accident, it will be beneficial to act quickly; the sooner you contact a Lubbock car accident attorney from our attorney the better your chances will be at recovering the money you are rightfully owed.
