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.

Voice-activated smart phones and in-dash technology may integrate with automobiles, enabling a driver to effectively have a conversation while driving. According to Yahoo News, recent studies have found that many voice-activated electronic systems are error-prone and complex to the point of distraction. This technology includes phones, GPS devices and backseat video systems.

In a study released by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, working jointly with the University of Utah, infotainment systems in automobiles by Mercedes, Chevrolet, Ford, Chrysler and Hyundai were analyzed. Drivers who were using voice-activated Siri on the iPhone 5 in a driving simulator were prone to rear-end accidents. In-dash infotainment systems from Chevrolet, Mercedes, Ford, and Chrysler, were found to be more complicated and distracting than using a cell phone.

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.
