Henderson, Nevada distracted driving law firm
While on the roads, drivers face a number of distractions. Any task that diverts drivers’ attention off the task of driving, takes their eyes off of the road, or removes their hands from the wheel can be considered a distraction. Some of the most common distractions for drivers include the following:
- Eating or drinking
- Listening to the radio or changing the station
- Talking or texting on cell phones
- Conversing with passengers
- Reaching for, or moving, objects within the vehicle
These, and other, distractions can leave motorists unable to control their vehicles, maneuver around road hazards or make other corrections while driving. Our Las Vegas distracted driving lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation into the circumstances of your accident to help ensure you have a strong case for compensation. This may include talking with the drivers and passengers involved in the collision and any witnesses, as well as obtaining cell phone records for the time of the crash.
