Touchscreen Devices and Driver Distraction
Touchscreen technology has become increasingly common in our mobile devices, meaning that more individuals are carrying these cell phones, mp3 players, and tablets in their vehicles, and in some cases, using them while driving. Performing any non-driving activity takes critical focus away from the task of navigation, and touch-screen devices compound the problem by necessitating full visual focus on the device.
Distracted driving is the leading cause of critical accidents in the United States, and the spread of touch screen devices has only contributed to distraction on the road. If you have suffered an injury in an accident caused by a distracted driver, the experienced Stevens Point car accident attorneys will work tirelessly to help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Hazards of Driver Distraction
Any time a driver is not focused on the road, they immediately become a hazard to drivers around them as well as any passengers. A distracted driver may experience the following complications from distracted driving:
- Dramatically reduced reaction times
- Inability to respond to sudden changes in driving conditions
- Lack of awareness of signage
- Drifting and swerving
This sort of behavior can quickly lead to an accident, and may result in serious injury to an innocent party.
If you have suffered an injury due to the negligence of another driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses and other damages. Call the experienced Stevens Point car accident attorneys at Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. today at 800-242-2874 for a free consultation.
