Nashville Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer

Injured in a Car Accident with a Distracted Driver?

Everyone knows that motor vehicle accidents happen on the road all the time. It is much more difficult to accept, however, when the accident was caused by someone else's gross negligence and recklessness. With major advances in telecommunications technology in the past number of years, there are more distractions than ever on the road. These technologies, however, greatly increase the chances of accidents in Nashville and across the country.

We at Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge believe that the party responsible for a motor vehicle accident—as well as that party's insurance carrier—should be held financially responsible. If you were injured in a car accident as a result of someone else not paying attention to the road, you should be compensated for the medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages that you incurred. Our distracted driving accident lawyers can fight for your fair compensation.

On-the-Road Distractions Causing Accidents

Driving a car safely requires total attention; however, there are far too many drivers on the road who greatly increase the dangers by allowing themselves to become distracted or by taking their eyes off the road.

Just some of the many distractions that can lead to car accidents include:

Dangers of Using a Cell Phone While Driving

Legislation intended to minimize or eliminate the use of cell phones while driving is popping up throughout the nation. Legislators and drivers alike are coming to realize that cell phone use while driving greatly increases the risk of an accident. In 2009, Tennessee banned texting while operating a motor vehicle, making it a Class C misdemeanor.

Consider the following statistics released from the National Safety Council:

  • An estimated 1 in 4 car accidents involve cell phone use
  • 60-70% of drivers report using a cell phone “at least sometimes” while driving
  • 58% of drivers between the ages of 17 and 29 regularly read texts while driving
  • Drivers using cell phones look but fail to see an estimated 50% of their driving environment
  • Using cell phone while driving increases the likelihood of a crash or near-crash by 280%

At Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge, we hold distracted drivers accountable for the damage they cause with their recklessness. Since 1977, our Nashville distracted driver accident attorneys have been representing injured motor vehicle accident victims, fighting to protect their rights and recover full and fair compensation on their behalf.
