In recent years, distracted driving has become a serious problem in New York and throughout the nation. Thousands of accidents are caused by drivers who take their eyes off the road — even for an instant — and become a danger to others on the road.

Drivers can be distracted by numerous actions from eating to reaching into the glove compartment to taking an aspirin to sending an email. At Jaroslawicz & Jaros, we have a long history of helping injured New York clients recover the maximum compensation possible following a car accident. In fact, our firm has recovered more than $2 billion in verdicts and settlements, with hundreds of our clients receiving $1 Million or more in compensation.

As technology continues to increase in scope and function, drivers are more attracted to the idea of multitasking. More so, teens and young drivers are conditioned to be on their phones all the time. From texting while walking to surfing the internet while eating, it is common to see people focused more on their smartphones than whatever physical activity they are performing. When this becomes a habit in the car, however, there can be deadly consequences.

Drivers can typically be distracted in three ways:

  1. Manual distractions: Actions that force a driver to remove his or her hands or feet from the vehicle’s controls
  2. Visual distractions: Actions that force a driver to remove his or her eyes from watching the road and surrounding cars
  3. Cognitive distractions: When a driver “daydreams" or allows his or her mind to wander rather than focusing on the act of driving

The act of texting, then, hits all three of the distractions, making it one of the most dangerous activities a driver can engage in.
