We Can Help You Get The Compensation You Deserve
Distracted driving is a phenomenon that has existed since the invention of the automobile. In decades past, distracted driving was limited to things like changing the radio station or tending to a crying child or rambunctious pet. With the recent emergence of smartphones and our dependence on texting and social media, distracted driving today is a national epidemic. Tragically, it is an epidemic that can lead to injuries and even death. If you have been affected by a motor-vehicle accident, the Law Offices of Myles S. Breiner can help. We have experience litigating accidents of all kinds.
A Driver's Primary Responsibility Is Safety
As we all learned in driver's education class, the primary responsibility of a driver is to operate the vehicle safely.
Distracted driving occurs when a driver is performing any activity that could potentially distract the driver from operating a vehicle. Distracted driving can be very innocent. It can be anything that takes a driver's eyes off the road, such as admiring a beautiful view or searching for a business or restaurant.
Many activities fall under the label "distracted driving." New laws in many states, including Hawaii, focus on portable electronic devices, such as smartphones. The emergence of texting and social media has compounded the problem of distracted driving, but the old forms of distracted driving still exist.
Distracted Driving And The Courtroom
Distracted driving can be extremely relevant to litigation. When drivers are distracted and cause an accident, they can be found responsible for the injuries suffered by others. For example, if an individual was texting while driving, evidence of the texting could be used to prove that the driver was negligent or reckless.
In these situations, it is imperative that you hire an attorney, such as Myles S. Breiner, who is a skilled litigator.
