Distracted driving costs lives

When a person gets behind the wheel of a car, it is not only their own safety they hold in their hands, but that of their passengers and anyone who shares the road with them. As any driver in Kentucky will know, there are countless hazards on the roads and numerous things that can interfere with your driving. However, it is vital to remain focused on the road and aware of the dangers.

Sadly, no matter how much care you take, you could still come to harm if another driver is negligent. Worse still, as we have discussed previously, the cost can be high. Many car accidents result in serious injuries or even death for those involved. Combined with the financial burden of repairs and medical expenses, the consequences can be life-changing.

But why should you pay the price for someone else's recklessness? All too many drivers allow themselves to be distracted by mobile phones, maps, food or even their own passengers. It may be only a moment of bad judgment, but it is enough to end lives and those responsible must be challenged for their actions.

By confronting thoughtless drivers, you may prevent them from repeating their dangerous mistakes and putting further people in danger. On top of this, you might be able to claim compensation to cover some of the costs associated with your injuries. Our page on distraction-related accidents has more information on the types of distractions that can divert a driver's attention and the options that may be available to you if you are harmed by such a driver.
