Distracted driving is a direct violation of this rule of the road and, in legal terms, the “standard of care” they owe to others.  If you can prove that the other driver was distracted, you may recover compensation for any damages caused by that distraction/negligence.

Compensation Available in a Distracted Driving Accident Claim

Every case is different, but most distracted driving accident claimants are compensated for the following.


If an accident proves fatal, the victim’s loved ones may file a wrongful death claim to seek damages related to their bereavement.
