Distracted Driving and Traffic Accidents

Driving requires a high level of concentration from drivers. However, numerous distractions rob drivers of the attention they should be paying to the road. These diversions are common actions that many people engage in on a regular basis.


Texting while driving is one of the most dangerous activities a driver can engage in. Despite knowing this fact, many people still continue to text while driving, putting themselves and others at risk.

Many drivers believe that they will never cause a texting-while-driving accident. Unfortunately, a high number of these drivers find out the hard way that they were mistaken. It takes only a second of carelessness for lives to be altered.


Reaching while driving is not negligence in and of itself. Drivers can safely reach for many vehicle controls while driving. It is only dangerous when the reach takes away from their ability to operate their auto safely. For example, reaching for something on the back seat while moving through traffic would likely be considered negligence, especially if the driver takes their eyes off the road.


There are lots of sights to see while driving. Drivers, however, should only take them in if it does not interfere with their driving. Rubbernecking is a common cause of car accidents, even when driving at slow speeds.

For example, as other drivers filter past the scene of a car accident, most will be tempted to pay some attention to the aftermath of the crash. Sadly, it’s a common occurrence that some drivers take their eyes off the road a fraction of a second too long and hit the vehicle in front of them.

At Cava Law Firm, winning is NO accident! Our distracted driving attorneys in Springfield hold negligent drivers accountable for every compensable loss they have caused.

Compensation for Accident Injuries and Losses

Compensation from distracted driving accidents begins with personal injury protection (PIP). PIP provides automatic benefits to motorists after an accident. These benefits cover medical care, limited lost income, and other limited expenses. All drivers in the state must carry PIP and seek compensation from their individual policies after a crash.

PIP coverage includes up to $8,000 of out-of-pocket losses, expenses, and costs related to a car accident. Motorcycle riders, however, are not eligible for PIP insurance. They would seek compensation for full damages from the at-fault driver’s liability policy.

Auto drivers may also seek compensation outside of PIP coverage when they have a serious injury or exceptionally high financial losses. Regardless of the source of compensation, victims injured by distracted drivers should understand that insurance companies fight to limit what they pay.

Victims are strongly encouraged to meet with a qualified Springfield distracted driving accident lawyer to compel proper insurance payouts that cover:

  • Medical and hospital services;
  • Lost income and employment opportunities;
  • Replacement services;
  • Home and vehicle modifications;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Disfigurement and scarring; and/or
  • Loss of enjoyment of life.

When a distracted driving accident results in death, the victim’s executor may hire a Springfield distracted driving accident attorney to recover wrongful death damages, including funeral and burial expenses, loss of expected net income, and loss of comfort and guidance.
