Hurt by a distracted driver? You can seek compensation in court

Over the last few decades, car accident death figures in the United States were on a steady decline. However, in recent years, the number of roadway fatalities in our country has started to rise. Considering how many technological advances have come out in recent years, how could this be?

The reason is likely due to the prevalence of smartphone use. In fact, researchers have proven that texting-while-driving is more dangerous than drinking and driving. That's because people who are using their smartphones will often take their eyes off the road for seconds at a time. This interferes with the driver's ability to navigate traffic, and it results in unnecessary and horrendous accidents.

Most Americans have smartphones these days, and the devices are so addictive that people have a hard time not looking at them every few minutes. In fact, it doesn't seem to matter whether someone is driving, at work or hiking a mountain trail deep in the wilderness. The urge to check one's cell can be even more difficult to resist than alcohol when you're an alcoholic.

Just take a look around you the next time you're on the road. You will no doubt witness countless California drivers flipping through their smartphones instead of paying close attention to the road.
