Distracted driving accidents killed 3,092 people in 2010 according to the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT). It is estimated that an additional 416,000 people were injured in automobile crashes involving a distracted driver.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after a car accident involving a distracted driver enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an automobile accident involving a distracted driver in Clayton County you should discuss your case with a car accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

Former U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has advocated for distracted driving awareness. Meanwhile, USDOT issued the first federally proposed guidelines encouraging auto manufacturers to reduce potential driver distraction risks from electronic devices.

The guidelines are the first in a series of documents the agency is publishing to address driving distraction sources: devices that divert a driver's eyes from the road. The Phase I proposed guidelines for auto manufacturers are to address the potential for distraction from devices used with their cars.

If you or someone you know has been hurt by a distracted driver, meet with a Clayton County auto accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Shane Smith. We can assist you in every stage of your case including obtaining the available evidence.
