Distracted Driving Accidents

Experienced Kentucky Distracted Driving Law Firm

Distracted driving has led to an increased number of car and truck accidents on the roadways of Kentucky. There is no shortage of media attention on the dangers of driving using cell phones, especially related to teen drivers. Texting is illegal for all drivers and the use of a cell phone is banned for anyone under the age of 18. However, distracted driving has been a major factor in accidents even before cell phones became popular. Distracted driving accidents are therefore only increasing every year. If you have been injured in a distracted driving accident, or if someone you know is the victim of wrongful death in a distracted driver accident, you need an experienced distracted driving attorney right away. Miniard Law Office has handled distracted driving personal injury cases throughout Kentucky and around the country. We will protect your rights and help you get the compensation you deserve.

Driving Distractions

Most drivers have had moments of inattention while driving. Along our overcrowded and seemingly always under construction roadways, there are more distractions than ever that divert the attention of drivers and lead to serious and sometimes fatal accidents. A driver’s loss of concentration behind the wheel endangers other drivers, passengers, pedestrians, cyclists, and bystanders. Drivers lose focus from such mental, visual, and manual distractions such as:

    • Texting
    • Talking on cell phones
    • Talking to passengers
    • Watching scenery, billboards, and signage
    • Changing radio stations, MP3 players, CD player
    • Setting and watching GPS devices
    • Reading maps and papers
    • Watching a video
    • Eating food and drinking beverages
    • Applying make-up and brushing hair
    • Gawking at car accidents
    • Dealing with children or pets unrestrained or being disruptive in the car
    • Loss of mental concentration
