Every year, 421,000 people are injured in distracted driving crashes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than eight people die in distracted driving crashes nationwide every single day.
When most people think of distracted driving, they think of people who text while driving. However, many actions can be considered distractions. Visual distractions that keep you from watching the road can include texting, using apps on your phone, using navigation systems, changing the radio station, and dealing with pets and kids.
But distractions aren’t just visual. They can be manual and cognitive as well. Eating, talking on the phone, conversing with passengers in the car, and daydreaming can all be distractions when driving.
Surprisingly, Texas doesn’t have laws against distracted driving yet, although they do have laws against cellphone use in school zones. However, many of the actions distracted drivers take — speeding, running stop signs, and running red lights —are still very illegal.
If you’ve been injured because of a distracted driver, you will need to file an insurance claim with the other driver’s insurance company to gain the compensation you deserve. If you can prove that the other driver caused the accident, the insurer will pay your medical bills, lost wages, and property damage up to the upper limit on your insurance policy.
That being said, dealing with insurance agents after an accident can be extremely frustrating and time-consuming —especially if you aren’t aware of all the tricks insurance companies pull to pay you as little as possible.
