What Are The Top 3 Distractions While Driving?



Anyone injured by a distracted driver in northern California needs to call Berg Injury Lawyers for help. Statistics reveal that distracted driving is as bad, if not worse, than drunk driving. Distracted driving includes many dangerous behaviors, including texting, talking on a cell phone, using a GPS, eating, and other types of activities in a car.

Although statistics show that drunk driving is more likely to cause a fatality, other statistics show that texting while driving is six times more dangerous than driving drunk.

When it comes to distracted driving, there are three main types of distractions that can cause a car accident:

Visual distractions – taking your eyes off of the roadway.

Manual distractions – taking your hand or hands off the steering wheel.

Cognitive distractions – taking your mind and focus off driving.

When it comes to distracted driving, the most dangerous distractions involve one or more of these types of distractions. For instance, talking on a cell phone through a hands-free system could be a cognitive distraction. Whereas eating while driving could involve manual distractions and mental distractions.

But texting while driving often involves visual, manual, and cognitive distractions – which is why it is so dangerous.

If you or a loved one were injured in a car accident caused by a distracted driver, you may be entitled to compensation. However, the insurance company and defense lawyer likely won’t be so friendly in giving you what you deserve. Fight back. Hire Berg Injury Lawyers to go after a distracted driver to get you the money you need for lost wages, medical bills, and for your pain and suffering.
