Distracted Driver Accidents in Austin

Passionate Representation for Those Injured by Irresponsible Drivers

We are a nation of multitaskers. However, there are times when the primary task is the only one that should get our attention. One of those times is when driving. Unfortunately, distracted driving is one of the most common and deadly acts of negligence a driver can commit. In a matter of seconds, a driver's glance at a text message can have devastating consequences. At the Law Offices of Jay Doyle, P.C., we have heard tragic stories from victims of distracted drivers, and we have helped many in Texas seek just compensation for the pain and loss they suffered.

Call us at (512) 270-2107 to schedule your free consultation. Our firm has won millions of dollars in compensation for our clients.

What Counts as a Distraction?

Anything that takes a driver's attention from driving is a distraction. You are probably most familiar with texting and the use of cellular devices as a form of distraction. However, just because the driver who caused your injuries did not have a cellphone in hand does not mean distraction was not involved.

Drivers can be negligent by performing any of these actions behind the wheel:

  • Texting while driving
  • Eating, drinking, and smoking while driving
  • Grooming behind the wheel of a car
  • Talking or carrying on with others in the vehicle
  • Allowing pets to ride on their laps
  • Paying attention to objects, people, or events outside the car
  • Seeking a song from a playlist or using the radio tuner
  • Programming a navigational device
  • Using any of the infotainment options included in newer cars

Even options that are voice activated or require minimal touch may still take a driver's eyes, mind and hands from the task of controlling the vehicle. In fact, a negligent driver can allow his or her own thoughts or emotions to become a dangerous distraction.
