Distracted Driving Accidents Happen All the Time
We all drive to get from place to place, but in our rush we sometimes become distracted when driving. Whether it is from a cell phone, the car radio, another passenger or something outside the car, which can lead to distracted driving accidents.
The most common type of these accidents is a rear-end accident where the distracted driver does not notice a change in the flow of traffic due to a traffic signal change or a car exiting the roadway. Rear-end accidents can result in injuries like whiplash and other serious spinal problems for those in both vehicles, especially if the distracted driver did not slow and occurred at full speed. If a distracted driver has hit you negligently the experienced Utah car accident attorneys at the law office of Salcido Law Firm can help you ensure your rights and claims are protected.
Avoid Distractions While Driving
When you are in control of a motor vehicle it is very important that you focus on the task at hand and not anything else. With the high speeds that cars travel and the sometimes mundane task of driving through the same roads on a daily basis it is easy to lose focus and forget how dangerous driving can be. Remove distractions from your car like debris on the floor, your cell phone and other electronics that could distract you while driving. If there is some other distraction in the car, other passengers, an important cell phone call or some other pressing need, pull over to the side of the road and deal with the distraction before proceeding
