Phoenix Distracted Driving Accident Attorney
Were You Seriously Injured By A Distracted Driver?
Distracted driving is a serious issue facing millions of drivers every single day. Safety experts have broken down this practice into three major types:
- Visual – Instances where the driver takes their eyes off the road.
- Cognitive – Instances where the driver is thinking about things other than driving.
- Manual – Instances where the driver takes their hands off the wheel.
The most dangerous type of distracted driving occurs when all three types of distracted driving occur, like when the driver chooses to text while behind the wheel.
