What Is Distracted Driving?
In Florida, distracted driving is considered any activity that diverts the driver's attention away from the primary task of driving. This includes activities like texting, talking on the phone, eating, drinking, using a GPS, adjusting the radio, or attending to passengers or pets in the vehicle. Importantly, Florida law explicitly prohibits texting while driving under the Florida Ban on Texting While Driving Law.
Common Causes of Distracted Driving Accidents
The most common cause of distracted driving accidents is texting while driving. Other prevalent causes include:
- Talking on a cell phone
- Eating or drinking
- Adjusting the radio or navigation system
- Attending to children or pets in the back seat
These actions significantly increase the risk of a collision as they divert the driver's attention from the road.
Compensation for Victims of Distracted Driving Accidents
Victims of distracted driving accidents may be entitled to compensation for various damages, including:
- Medical expenses: This can cover both current and future medical bills related to the accident.
- Lost wages: If your injury has caused you to miss work or reduced your earning capacity, you may be compensated for these losses.
- Pain and suffering: Compensation may also be awarded for physical pain and emotional distress caused by the accident.
