Thousand Oaks Distracted Driving Attorney

Fighting on Behalf of Injured Victims

Distracted driving is quickly becoming one of the most dangerous driving habits people engage in while on the road, claiming thousands of lives every year. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 3,477 individuals were killed in distracted driving accidents while another 391,000 were injured in 2015. While there are certainly many forms of distracted driving, texting and driving is one of the most dangerous forms, given that it requires a driver to not only look away from the road, but it also requires his or her attention and one or both hands.

If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident that was caused by a distracted driver, it is imperative that you seek skilled legal guidance. At Ercolani Law Group in Thousand Oaks, our legal team is dedicated to helping the wrongfully injured obtain the fair and just compensation they deserve.

The Dangers of Texting and Driving

People often underestimate how dangerous it is to text or to read a text while operating a motor vehicle. To put it into perspective, we have compiled some facts that highlight the dangers of this terrible habit:

  • Those who text while driving have a much higher chance of being involved in a collision than drunk drivers. In fact, compared to drunk drivers, a texting driver is 6 times more likely of causing a serious accident.
  • If you think there is nothing dangerous about looking away from the road for a few seconds, think again. If a driver is traveling at a speed of 55mph and looks away for only five seconds, this is plenty of time to travel the length of a football field.
  • It is estimated that about 1 out of every 4 motor vehicle accidents in the country is related to texting and driving.

Nothing is more important on the road than your safety and the safety of those around you. When other drivers behave negligently and text while driving, accidents happen and people can sustain terrible injuries.
