Colorado Distracted Driving Accident Cases
Our distracted driving accident law firm in Denver, Colorado is ready to fight for your rights. Distracted driving is a dangerous habit practiced by innumerable motorists across the nation and the numbers are growing. Multitasking has become a very common activity in the modern age, especially with all of the technological advances that have made it so much easier to perform several tasks at once. Because of this, people have gotten overly comfortable with this practice, and let it cause them to exhibit dangerous driving behavior. Technology has certainly caused some of these problems, but it isn't the only cause. Something as simple as eating, taking a drink, or fiddling with the radio can cause a devastating auto accident. If a distracted driver caused your car accident and injury, you have the right to pursue financial compensation for your pain, suffering, medical expenses, and property damage. The person or people responsible for your property damage and injuries should be made to pay for the problems they have caused, so that you can avoid further suffering and financial distress.

Types of Distracted Driving
Any activity that takes the driver's attention or eyes away from the road is a distraction. This includes many different activities, objects, or even emotional stresses, some of which are so simple and common that you may not realize that they are dangerous at all. Driving distractions fall into one (or more) of the following categories:
- Cognitive Distraction
- Visual Distraction
- Manual Distraction
A cognitive distraction takes the driver's mental focus off driving and causes him or her to think of something unrelated; a visual distraction takes the driver's eyes off the road to look elsewhere in the vehicle or even out the window; a manual distraction removes his or her hands from the steering wheel, usually to fumble around or reach for something. Some activities, such as texting while driving, fall into all three categories. No matter what category a distraction falls into, they are incredibly dangerous when combined with driving an automobile.
Dangerous Technology Distractions While Driving
Many experts believe that texting and surfing the web are the deadliest forms of distracted driving. Smart phones and tablets make these activities easy to do in a car, even while driving, but that doesn't mean that people should, and they usually know better too. Such activities while driving severely hamper reaction time and decision making skills, and the results can be dangerous, or sometimes even deadly. If you were involved in an accident where someone was distracted by technology while driving, you may have a strong personal injury case to fight for compensation, which can be very important if you are accumulating medical bills for accident related injuries.
Other Forms of Distracted Driving Include:
- Applying Makeup
- Calling or Texting
- Adjusting the Radio
- Reading a Map
- Looking at a Cell Phone
- Using a GPS Device
- Watching a Video
- Music (loud music)
- Hands-Free Phone
- Emotional Driving
