How Distracted Driving can Cause Car Accidents

Distracted driving is a leading cause of car accidents in Texas. When drivers divert their attention away from the road due to texting, phone calls, eating, or other distractions, they put themselves and others at risk. These accidents can result in injuries, fatalities, and significant emotional and financial burdens. In the wake of such accidents, Malone Legal Group stands ready to provide essential legal support to victims seeking justice. Our Lubbock car accident attorneys specialize in car accident cases and will help you in every process.

Causes of Car Accidents Due to Distracted Driving:

  1. Texting and Phone Use: Sending or reading text messages, making phone calls, or using mobile apps while driving takes a driver's eyes off the road and increases the risk of a collision.

  2. Eating and Drinking: Consuming food or beverages while driving can lead to reduced focus on the road and delayed reaction times.

  3. Adjusting In-Car Systems: Changing the radio station, adjusting climate controls, or using navigation systems can divert a driver's attention from driving safely.

  4. Conversations with Passengers: Engaging in intense or emotional conversations with passengers can lead to cognitive distractions, impairing a driver's decision-making abilities.

  5. Grooming: Applying makeup, shaving, or other grooming activities while driving can lead to visual and cognitive distractions.
