Kinston Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer
Distracted driving accidents frequently occur in North Carolina and Kinston is no exception. The North Carolina Department of Transportation reports that in 2019, roughly 19 percent of auto accidents in the state involved distracted driving.
A distracted driver includes anyone operating a vehicle that is not fully focused. Look to your left or right while driving and you may notice a distracted driver talking on the phone, texting, putting on makeup, eating or engaged in conversation with passengers. Whenever drivers take their eyes off the road, it puts everyone in the car and others sharing the road at risk. Many times, these distractions result in serious car accidents. If you live in Kinston, North Carolina or the surrounding area and have been involved in a distracted driving accident, then it is important to have an experienced Kinston distracted driving accident lawyer on your side.
Different Types of Distracted Driving
Although many people associate distracted driving with talking or texting on the phone, there are many different types of distracted driving, all of which can place those on the road at risk.
Distracted driving may include:
- Texting and driving
- Talking on the phone (even if it is a speaker phone)
- Adjusting the GPS navigation system
- Using CarPlay or Android Auto (or another in car navigation and entertainment system)
- Eating while driving
- Applying makeup or doing one’s hair while driving
- Watching a video while driving
While there are many more examples of distracted driving, the above is just a short list of some of the more common examples. Distracted driving involves anything that takes the driver’s attention off the road for any length of time, sometimes resulting in a serious accident.
Never assume that other drivers are paying attention while behind the wheel of a car. Always stay alert and safe and never ride with a driver who engages in distracted driving. It is dangerous and can result in a serious and potentially life-threatening car accident.
