Distracted drivers are one of the biggest hazards on the road today, causing thousands of preventable injuries and deaths every year. Distracted driving comes in many forms, but all amount to the same thing: distractions cause drivers to not fully pay attention to the task of driving, and when they are not paying attention, they are less able to react to changing conditions. The result is a preventable car accident that causes someone to get hurt.

Common forms of driver distraction include:

  • Texting or talking on a cell phone
  • Eating or drinking
  • Applying makeup
  • Reaching for items
  • Listening to overly loud music
  • Rubbernecking

If you have recently been involved in a car accident that was caused by a distracted driver, then you are likely already acutely aware of the stress and emotional turmoil that an unexpected accident can cause. You might have questions about how you will get your medical bills paid and whether the insurance company will offer you a fair settlement. In times like these, it is important to have a skilled attorney on your side who can handle the legal aspect of your case while you focus on getting well.

Wrongful Death Actions After Distracted Driving Car Accidents

Sometimes, serious car accidents caused by distracted drivers result in fatalities. Often, this will result in criminal charges being filed against the driver, but that does nothing to compensate the surviving family members of the person that died. That is why, in addition to criminal liability, negligent drivers can also be held civilly liable for their actions through wrongful death lawsuits. Wrongful death lawsuits are essentially personal injury claims brought on behalf of a deceased person. Damages may include things like funeral and burial costs, loss of financial support, loss of consortium, and any medical bills incurred by the family prior to the death. Consult an attorney to determine how best to move forward.
