We can help you pursue the rightful compensation for your losses and ensure that a negligent driver is held responsible for causing you to suffer harm.

South Florida Texting and Streaming Accident Attorneys

Over the past few decades, mobile technology has drastically escalated the already pervasive dangers of distracted driving. Despite laws that prohibit texting or streaming while behind the wheel, cell phone use remains one of the major causes of automobile accidents throughout the U.S. It has been estimated that nearly 25 percent of all car crashes and 10 percent of fatal auto accidents can be attributed to driver distraction.

Distracted driving accidents are usually preventable, especially when cell phones and electronic devices are the cause of distractions. At The Law Offices of John D. Ameen, P.A., we fight for justice and compensation for clients who have been impacted by distracted drivers' negligence. We understand the relevant laws surrounding electronic device usage while driving, and we work tirelessly to demonstrate that distracted drivers were liable for causing car accidents that resulted in serious injuries and damages.

Other Issues That Lead to Distracted Driving

While many instances of distracted driving involve electronic devices, these are not the only distractions that affect drivers. Other issues that can affect a person's ability to pay attention to the road and maintain full control of their vehicle include:

  • Eating food and drinking beverages
  • Making adjustments to vehicle controls, including radios, seat positions, or heating and air conditioning
  • Conversing with passengers
  • Attending to children in the vehicle
  • Reaching for objects on a vehicle's floors or seats
  • Grooming, including applying makeup, shaving, or adjusting one's hair

Even a few seconds of distracted driving can result in devastating collisions. Drivers who look away from the road, take their hands off the steering wheel, or pay attention to something other than driving are much more likely to miss important details or be unable to react correctly to potential dangers. These distractions can result in serious harm to others or even fatalities.
