More than 2 million people were injured in auto accidents in 2010 according to a recent report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that 16 percent of all fatal auto crashes and 21 percent of all auto crashes causing injury were the result of distracted driving.
One of the most common types of distracted driving is texting and driving. Studies show that drivers who are typing, sending or reading texts are at a much higher risk of causing auto accidents.
If you or a family member has been injured in a motor vehicle accident that was caused by a distracted driver, I encourage you to contact me, attorney J. David Markham. I represent clients in all distracted driving claims, including those involving:
- Texting and driving
- Negligent use of a cell phone
- Eating or drinking
- Arguing with passengers
- Grooming or applying makeup
- Use of GPS and other electronic devices
I am committed to helping people who have been injured due to the negligence and wrongdoing of others. To schedule a free consultation, contact my law office in Lakeport, California.
