Distracted driving is now the leading cause of motor vehicle accidents in the United States. Although texting while driving is, by far, the worst offense, any activity taking a driver away from concentrating on driving – using a cell phone, eating or drinking, adjusting the radio – contributes to distracted driving. In 2017 Delaware was found to have the second highest death rate in the United States from accidents involving distracted driving.
The state of Delaware has tough distracted driving laws in place. Texting is banned, as are handheld devices, and novice drivers are not allowed to use any kind of cellphone, even hands-free. The attorneys at Hudson & Castle are serious about ensuring that those who have been harmed by an accident caused by a distracted driver are compensated for their physical, emotional, and financial injuries.
Examples of Distracted Driving:
- Using a cell phone
- Eating or drinking
- Personal grooming
- Adjusting MP3 player, radio, or CD
- Using a navigation system
- Watching a video
- Talking to passengers
