Distracted Driving Accident

Cleveland Distracted Driving Attorneys

How Is Distracted Driving Classified in OH?

From a legal perspective, distracted driving is defined as any non-driving activity that diverts attention away from the primary task of operating a vehicle. This could encompass anything from using a mobile device, adjusting the car stereo, to even eating or drinking while driving. Significant emphasis is placed on mobile device usage, with texting or making calls without a hands-free device being among the most common causes of distracted driving accidents.

If you've been injured in a distracted driving accident, it's important that you seek immediate medical attention, even if you think your injuries are minor. Document everything from the scene of the accident, and obtain a copy of the police report. It's crucial to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

Common Injuries Associated with Distracted Driving

The injuries sustained in distracted driving accidents can range from minor to severe, and in some cases, may be life-altering. Here are some common injuries associated with these types of accidents:

  1. Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries: These are often the result of rear-end collisions, which are common in distracted driving accidents. Whiplash can cause pain, stiffness, and loss of movement in the neck and shoulders.
  2. Broken bones: The force of a collision can lead to broken or fractured bones. These injuries can affect any part of the body, but are often seen in the arms, legs, and ribs.
  3. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI): These can range from mild concussions to more serious brain damage. TBI can result in long-term cognitive and physical impairments.
  4. Spinal cord injuries: These can lead to paralysis, chronic pain, and other serious, long-term complications.
  5. Internal injuries: Damage to organs, blood vessels, or the abdomen can occur due to the impact of the accident. These injuries may not be immediately apparent and can be life-threatening if not treated promptly.
  6. Psychological injuries: Accidents can lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. These are often overlooked, but can significantly impact a person's quality of life.

    "David worked our case with professionalism and patience in an amazing way that ultimately led to a positive outcome."
    Right from the very beginning of our case, David Skall and his assistant Jean Witt were both extremely kind and compassionate to help us put closure on a wrongful death case involving my father at a care facility. They were quick to answer any questions that we had and they made sure we were kept in the loop of this entire process. even though we were in the middle of a pandemic, David and his team were able to adapt their technology and make it all work out for our benefit. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.
