The Temptation of Distraction
Nowadays, we are living in a society that places a great deal of emphasis on obtaining maximum efficiency with one’s time. Every day seems to be filled with obligations, even if those obligations are just shopping at the grocery store or going to work. In order to keep up with this pace, an individual may choose to try to accomplish multiple tasks at once. The corporate world refers to this as multitasking, and it is a highly desired skill. But behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, this can directly contribute to devastating car accidents.
There are few laws in place to explicitly prohibit most driving distractions. Despite this, accidents attributable to a driver’s failure to pay attention to the road can form the basis of a lawsuit against that driver.

Common Driving Distractions
With each passing year, carmakers attempt to introduce new features that make their vehicles more luxurious than those they sold in the previous model year. Add on our cultural fixation with technological gadgets, and it quickly becomes apparent that the problem of distracted driving is continually escalating. Some of the common driving distractions that may have led to your accident include:
- Text messaging while driving
- Talking on a cellular phone while driving
- Eating or drinking while driving
- Operating console based music and climate controls
- Speaking with passengers in the vehicle
- Applying makeup/shaving/other aesthetic concerns
