Car Accident Due to Distracted Driver


There are plenty of distractions out there, and we all fall victim to them from time to time, but when drivers allow themselves to become distracted behind the wheel, it can lead to disaster. Driving is an immense responsibility, and every driver owes everyone else on the road a duty of care that includes driving safely, which translates to driving free of dangerous distractions.

If a driver’s distraction leaves you injured in a car accident, 388CEDA is here to help. We offer the comprehensive medical care that you need to help you regain your health and well-being, and we can also recommend an experienced car accident attorney upon your request that we do so.


Driver Distraction

In order to drive safely, motorists must carefully train their attention on the road ahead and the traffic on it. While many motorists are guilty of succumbing to all kinds of distractions, the most dangerous distraction of all, which is also becoming increasingly common, is texting and other forms of smartphone engagement.

When a motorist reads or composes a text, it takes him or her about five seconds to do so, and during that time, the driver’s thoughts, vision, and hands are engaged in an activity other than driving safely. At highway speeds, that five seconds translates to driving about the length of a football field, and a distracted driver can do plenty of damage in that considerable expanse of road.

Your Physical, Financial, and Emotional Damages

If you are injured by a distracted driver, you can expect to experience considerable losses that can be physical, financial, and emotional in nature.

Your Physical Damages

Your physical damages refer to your physical injuries, which can be quite extensive. Common examples include:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Burns, cuts, tears, and abrasions

Physical injuries are often slow to heal and can be long-term in nature (including leading to life-threatening secondary health concerns). In other words, it is important to understand the complete nature of your injuries in order to recognize your physical damages in their entirety.

Your Financial Damages

The financial damages associated with a serious car accident can be overwhelming and are likely to include your medical costs and lost wages. The medical costs you experience can include all of the following:

  • Emergency care and transportation
  • Surgery and hospitalization
  • Pain management
  • Doctor care
  • Specialist care
  • Physical therapy
  • Rehabilitation
  • Prescription medication
  • Adaptive physical devices

In addition to your medical expenses, there are your lost wages to consider. On your journey toward regaining your health and well-being, you’re likely to miss a considerable amount of work and to experience decreased wages as a result. If your injuries are quite serious, your earning potential can be negatively affected – and your career path may be altered.

Your Emotional Damages

The emotional damages associated with being injured as a result of another driver’s distraction cannot be overstated. Many victims experience symptoms that are not unlike those associated with PTSD. Examples include:

  • Fear of getting back behind the wheel
  • Emotional lability
  • Self-isolation
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Increased anxiety
  • Bouts of depression
  • Severe mood swings

These emotional damages can be exceptionally difficult to overcome and should not be overlooked in your car accident claim.
