Types of Distracted Driving
Distracted driving has become a major cause of motor vehicle accidents in the United States in recent years; too frequently, motorists attempt to multitask while driving, including:
- Talking on cell phones
- Adjusting the radio
- Taking care of children
- Applying makeup
Regardless of what the other driver was doing to be distracted while driving, that person is responsible for the injuries caused by the accident. Our Indianapolis accident attorneys hold distracted drivers accountable for the injuries and damages they cause, fighting for justice on behalf of our clients and getting them the money they need to get back on their feet.
Truck Driver Distractions
Motorists of all types drive while distracted, but distracted driving is a particular problem among commercial truck drivers. Truckers put in long hours in their trucks, and many times they are under pressure to make their deliveries. Truck accidents are often caused by:
- Driver fatigue
- Excessive speed for road conditions
- Lack of qualifications and training
- Cell phone and GPS use
We place a special emphasis on truck accident cases in our legal practice. Our Indianapolis truck accident lawyers have handled many truck accident cases; our attorneys hold officer and board member positions in the Trucking Litigation Group of the American Association of Justice, and we have written numerous articles on trucking accident litigation, covering issues like the rules of the road for truck drivers and Understanding the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.

We do everything we can to help our clients understand the complicated legal process and to fight for the best compensation awards possible for our clients.
