Distracted Driver Accidents

When operating a motor vehicle, a driver’s primary job is to drive safely and pay attention to the road. Georgia’s distracted driving law is very broad, and states in part that “a driver… shall not engage in any actions which shall distract such driver from the safe operation of such vehicle….”

While texting while driving gets most of the media attention, many other activities can distract a driver and cause crashes, including putting on makeup, reaching for an object, or eating and drinking.

A distracted driving accident lawyer in Atlanta can help you assess the damages, collect evidence, and determine the best course of action in your case.
