Distracted Driving Accident Attorney in Erie, PA

Experienced Truck Accident Lawyers Help Pennsylvania Crash Victims Get Financial Compensation

One of the most serious epidemics on our roads and highways is the phenomenon of distracted driving, which results in countless car accidents and truck accidents every year. According to distraction.gov, the informational website set up by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to educate drivers on the phenomenon, the situation is dire. A few statistics point to the seriousness:

  • 10 percent of all drivers under the age of 20 involved in fatal crashes were reported as distracted at the time of the crash.
  • Engaging in visual-manual subtasks (such as reaching for a phone, dialing, and texting) associated with the use of hand-held phones and other portable devices increased the risk of getting into a crash by three times.
