Distracted driving accidents killed 3,328 people in 2012 according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Data show that drivers under age 20 are among the highest risk group.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after an auto 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 an auto accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

According to a report released by researchers from West Virginia University and published in the Journal of the Medical Association, distracted driving fatalities have increased each year and the only way to stop the upward trend is to make all cell phone use by drivers illegal while they are driving. Making the technology unavailable is the most drastic way to rapidly reduce distracted driving. Hands-free technology would remain legal, but researchers emphasized that this would only be so if research shows that the technology does not lead to distracted driving.

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.
