Distracted Driving and Motorcycle Accidents

It has been known for many years that distracted motorists are the main cause of motorcycle accidents on the roadways. Motorists get distracted by everything from children to texting on cell phones and fail to see the motorcycle in front of or beside them. If you have been in a motorcycle accident due to a motorist being distracted, you need to contact a Dayton Ohio motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible to get fair representation. 

Research that goes back for more than 30 years shows that motorcycles are just not seen or that motorists are concentrating on bigger things on the road and completely miss the motorcycles in their view. In recent years, however, a more modern cause has emerged for distracted driving leading to motorcycle accidents. This phenomenon is caused by digital devices and is illegal but still happens on a daily basis.

It is estimated that in 2012 alone, there were over 3,000 people killed because of distraction-related crashes, including motorcycle accidents as well. Although, eating, drinking, fiddling with the radio, and talking to other people in the car have all contributed to the problem, cell phone usage and texting has been attributed to quite a few of these motorcycle accidents.

If you have been in a motorcycle accident that has been attributed to driver distraction, you need to contact a reputable attorney right away. You may be entitled to compensation for damages and hospital bills at the least. Distracted driving has always been a problem in the past, but has become more prevalent with the invention of cell phones and texting. Do not become a statistic- don't drink and drive.
