Distracted Driving Accidents

Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

Jeannette A., Client

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Our Atlanta Distracted Driving Lawyer Can Help After a Texting and Driving Accident

Distracted driving is one of the main issues facing motorists on the roadways. Talking, texting, and emailing on phones have all become common practices of distracted driving and some of the most common that our Atlanta distracted driving attorney sees on a regular basis. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 660,000 drivers are either using a phone or manipulating some type of electronic device at any given time on our nation’s roadways. Even hands-free devices can cause you to miss important visual and audio cues needed to drive safely. 

In particular, if you have been injured in a distracted driving accident caused by another driver’s cell phone usage, an Atlanta texting and driving lawyer at Gilormo Injury Law can help you with all of your insurance and legal claims.

What is Distracted Driving?

While the answer may seem obvious there are three different classifications or types of distracted driving: 

  • Manual – A distraction that removes your hands from the steering wheel, like reaching for something in the back seat, or eating while driving
  • Visual – A distraction that takes your eyes away from the road, like applying make-up or turning to see an accident on the side of the freeway
  • Cognitive – A distraction that that has you thinking about something other than your driving, like driving when you are emotional or fatigued 

Common Types of Distracted Driving

As our Atlanta distracted driving lawyer can attest, distracted driving can be caused by more than just cell phone usage. It also includes any activity that takes your eyes off the road, even for just a few seconds. Some of the most common distractions aside from cell phone usage include:

  • Eating
  • Drinking
  • Smoking
  • Grooming and applying makeup
  • Using a GPS navigation system
  • Adjusting the radio, temperature, or any other setting while driving
  • Other occupants in the vehicle
  • People or events occurring outside of the vehicle, such as accidents or police action
  • Daydreaming or being lost in thought

Atlanta Distracted Driving Lawyer Explains Georgia Texting and Driving Laws 

The “Hands-Free Law” seeks to encourage motorists to use hands-free devices to eliminate manual and visual types of distractions. Since 2018 drivers in Georgia are prohibited from holding a cell phone or any other stand-alone electronic device (like a tablet). The law also states that motorists cannot write, send or read any text-based communication, or engage in viewing media like watching a movie while driving.
