Distracted Driving is More Common Than You May Think

A study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) suggested that 1 in 5 crashes in 2009 were a direct result of distracted driving. Alongside driving while intoxicated, driving while distracted is a major contributor to unnecessary accidents that occur on the road. More importantly, distracted driving is a form of negligence that a driver may be held accountable for in an accident.

When it comes to an injury claim, distracted driving can play a vital role in holding the other driver responsible for your financial recovery. If you have been injured by a distracted driver in Orange County, consult a car accident lawyer with the legal knowledge and skill necessary to help you secure your entitlements and successfully recover your losses and expenses.

Different Types of Distracted Driving

At Cohn & Swartzon, P.C., we help our clients identify the elements of distraction in their individual circumstances. This is essential to building a strong case to present as part of your injury claim. If you are unable to effectively establish driver distraction and prove negligence, you may lose your chance to receive the financial compensation you deserve.

Our car accident attorneys in Orange County make it a priority to identify driver distraction, and we believe our clients deserve to be informed about the details of their case as well. Familiarize yourself with the general categories of driver distraction below. When you are ready to take action, contact our firm and discuss your situation with our personal injury team.

Visual Distraction

This occurs when drivers take their eyes off the road. This can involve looking into a mirror to apply makeup, looking down to read a text message or looking in the backseat to reach for an item. Without their visual attention on the road, drivers may not respond to changing conditions in time.

Manual Distraction

Removing hands from the steering wheel is a manual driving distraction. Even just taking one hand off the wheel to perform a separate task can create a serious danger. Eating and drinking, holding a map, or changing the music on a radio or phone are just some of the ways drivers are manually distracted.

Cognitive Distraction

Cognitive distraction involves being mentally unfocused or inattentive. This may be difficult to notice if the driver may have their hands on the wheel and eyes straight forward. However, daydreaming and holding a conversation is enough to divert a driver's focus away from the road.

Make Preparations to Obtain the Compensation You Deserve

Rushing into an injury lawsuit can create more trouble than its worth, but waiting too long to file can cause you to miss your chance at recovering compensation. Take the first step toward a successful claim by exploring your legal options with a skilled accident attorney. At Cohn & Swartzon, P.C., distracted driving accidents are just some of the cases in which we have helped our clients find success. We work tirelessly to protect our clients' entitlements from start to finish.

Accidents can leave victims with heavy financial burdens, and distracted driving incidents are no different. That is why we operate on contingency fees and do not charge our clients up-front. We only collect a fee if you win and are awarded compensation. This has allowed us to help individuals focus on their recovery while we focus on their financial recompense, and we have been successful in securing tens of millions for our clients in verdicts and settlements.

  • I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys.

    “It was such a pleasure to be represented by Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. recently. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys. After a car accident which involved numerous injuries, I couldn't handle the stress of dealing with the insurance companies. They completely took over for me. They negotiated with the insurance companies and as a result of their determination, I received a very fast and fair settlement. All during this process, they kept me updated on all the proceedings, always returned my phone calls promptly and answered any questions I had the entire staff at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. were always courteous and helpful. Thank you ever so much!”

  • They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim

    “It is a real pleasure to recommend Cohn & Swartzon! For personal, prompt and excellent service they can't be beat. They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim. I am so thankful to them.”

  • They stayed true to their word

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided!

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”
