Distracted Drivers: a Danger to Self and Others

Aurora Injury Attorneys for Accident Victims of Distracted Drivers

We’ve all seen it and maybe we have even done it our self, I am referring to driving while distracted. We have witnessed the man in the car next to us running his electric shaver over his jaw. We have glanced at the woman brushing on mascara at a stop sign. We have been in a lane beside someone texting while driving. It is a fact that many auto accidents are caused by some form of driver inattention. Nearly 20 percent of the drivers who caused crashes were “engaged in at least one interior non-driving activity” otherwise known as distracted driving behavior. According to The Zebra’s article Distracted Driving Statistics, in 2019, distracted driving was a reported factor in 8.5% of fatal motor vehicle crashes.

The most common causes of distracted driving include:

  • Talking and texting on cell phones
  • Changing routes on a GPS device
  • Adjusting music or controls
  • Grooming
  • Talking to passengers
  • Not looking at the road
  • Zoning out

When Russell Haugen took my case, I never had to follow-up as he ensured that I was always updated on the status.

It was a very long process for me as I started my case with one of their former colleagues then it was assigned to Russell Haugen, who worked diligently to finalize the case.
