New Jersey Distracted Driving Accidents Lawyer

Motor vehicle accidents are an inherent danger in our car-dominant society. The opportunities for collisions are compounded by the number of drivers on the roads and the amount of time that we spend on the roadways. In every generation, public policy tends to focus on particular causes of accidents and remedies designed to make driving safer:

  • Seat belts and front-seat shoulder belts became mandatory equipment in cars sold in the U.S. in 1968. In 1984, the first state laws appeared making seat belt use a requirement.
  • Highways speeds were lowered to 55 in the mid-1970s (largely for the purpose of increasing fuel inefficiency, but also reportedly reducing the number of fatal accidents).
  • Cars were required to be manufactured with air bags beginning in the 1990s.
  • Drunk driving prosecutions have increased since the advent of advocacy groups such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).
  • In today's digitalized world, distracted driving involving cellphones and other mobile devices is under scrutiny. According to current laws in New Jersey, drivers can use only hands-free cellphones while operating motor vehicles.

New Jersey Distracted Driving Accident Attorneys

If you were seriously injured or if your loved one was killed in a car accident, another driver may be considered negligent if he or she was voluntarily distracted for whatever reason:

  • Engaging in distracting conversation with passengers
  • Fiddling with radio dials or a cigarette lighter
  • Putting on makeup, shaving or otherwise engaging in grooming while driving
  • Reading a map or other written material while driving
  • Texting or emailing

If another driver was distracted when a crash occurred that injured you or killed your loved one, your personal injury attorney's investigation will most likely include a review of cellphone records and email records. Consideration of laws against texting while driving and cellphone use while driving (other than hands free) may make your injury claim or wrongful death claim more compelling. However, any evidence of preventable distracted driving can strengthen your claim, whether or not there are specific laws targeting a particular distracting activity by drivers.
