Survey shows factors that lead to being a distracted driver

Anyone who has been on the road in Pittsburgh and throughout Pennsylvania will likely have a story of encountering a distracted driver. The reasons for people choosing to drive while distracted are not often considered, but an online survey for Travelers Insurance examined this very issue. In the responses, it was found that people are not solely texting friends, checking emails, using social media or playing games. Many - more than four of every 10 - are using their phones for work while driving. This can be a key factor when there is a car accident and victims are seeking to be compensated for their injuries and losses.

Car crash kills woman; vehicle flees scene

Heading out on the road at any time in Pittsburgh can be a risky endeavor. Accidents happen frequently for a variety of reasons from drivers operating under the influence, driving while distracted, operating the vehicle recklessly, disobeying traffic laws and more. One of the fundamental parts of an accident is that the drivers are expected to remain at the scene and lend assistance or call for emergency responders if there are injuries. Unfortunately, not everyone does that. This is particularly egregious if there is a fatal accident. Those who were affected by a fatal car crash and lost a loved one must be aware of their right to seek compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit.
