There are many ways to prevent distracted driving

Distracted driving is a major problem in the United States for many reasons. First and foremost, this behavior is extremely dangerous. When a person becomes distracted when driving, there is a greater chance that he or she could cause an accident.

There are many ways to prevent distracted driving, including the following:

-- State laws. Most states have laws in place that ban texting and driving. While this will never stop the problem completely, it definitely makes people think twice.

-- Federal laws. In addition to state laws to combat texting and driving, the federal government has gotten in on the action. For example, it is illegal for commercial drivers to text and drive.

-- Driver education. Parents should take the time to discuss the perils of distracted driving with their child. Driver education courses are also focusing more heavily on this dangerous behavior, as it helps young drivers understand that they should avoid distractions at all costs.

These are just a few of the many ways to prevent distracted driving. As progress continues to be made, everyone hopes that the end result will be fewer distracted driving accidents.

Were you recently involved in an accident with a distracted driver? Were you injured? Do you now require treatment, such as surgery, along with long-term physical therapy?

You have legal rights, such as the ability to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for your injuries and other damages. This is a bad spot to be in, but if you find yourself here, you should do whatever it takes to protect your legal rights.
