Distracted Driving Accidents in Atlantic City & Southern NJ
As we all know, texting while driving is unsafe. This is common sense knowledge has been recognized by the New Jersey Appellate Courts as a basis for a personal injury recovery.
Experts agree that there are three types of distraction when texting while driving:
- Visual – taking your eyes off the road;
- Manual – taking your hands off the wheel; and
- Cognitive – taking your mind off the road.
While all distractions can adversely impact safety, texting is one of the most dangerous because it involves all three types of distraction.
Cell phone records for the date and time of the accident are commonly requested in New Jersey to see if the other driver was texting or talking on a cell phone, such as distract the driver and cause the accident.
The most important reason to not text or use a cell phone while driving is the safety of yourself, your passengers and other people on the roadways. Texting while driving is another factor that can make you responsible in whole or in part for an accident. This can include not only causing you to violate a rule of the road, but also can prevent you from observing another driver in time to take evasive action so as to create partial responsibility for an otherwise avoidable accident.
While cell phone use is the most notable form of distracted driving in New Jersey, other distractions may give rise to liability, such as:
- Using a Navigation System
- Adjusting a Radio, CD Player, or MP3 Player
- Personal Grooming
- Eating and Drinking
