    Getting You Justice After A Distracted Driving Accident

    Now that virtually everybody has a smartphone, distracted driving is a major problem in central Kentucky. Most chronic distracted drivers believe that their bad habits do not increase the risk of a car accident. They are wrong. Even a few seconds of distraction from the road can be all it takes to cause a wreck and badly hurt someone.

    At McCoy & Sparks, PLLC, we know the danger that distracted driving poses for Bardstown and Nelson County. We live here and have seen how distracted drivers have hurt our neighbors and our clients. With a track record of results, we are fierce advocates for our clients who have been injured in distracted driving car accidents.

    The Facts About Distracted Driving

    Distracted driving is a national crisis. The National Highway Transportation And Safety Administration reports that each day, around 481,000 Americans use their cellphone behind the wheel.

    Distracted drivers caused 391,000 injuries in 2015 and 3,450 deaths in 2016. Besides using a cellphone to talk, text or use the internet while driving, other forms of distracted driving include:

    • Eating or drinking
    • Adjusting the radio or navigation device
    • Talking to passengers

    Safe driving requires your complete attention. A driver who is focusing on their phone instead of what they are doing puts everybody on the road at risk of harm. If you have been seriously injured in a distracted driving wreck, you could be dealing with long-term disabilities that reduce your quality of life and take away your ability to support your family.
