Fighting for Victims of Distracted Driving

St. Louis Distracted Driving Lawyer

Injured? We're Available 24/7!

Today, technology is a huge part of the way we live. It is in our houses, at our jobs, in our cars, and in our pockets. As a result, cellphones, navigational maps, and other sources of technology have all become dangerous pieces of equipment for drivers everywhere.

In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that, on average, 15 people face fatal-injuries due to distracted driving accidents every day. In addition, roughly 1,200 people are injured every day in these types of crashes. While technology is the leading cause of distracted driving accidents, any type of distracted driving jeopardizes the lives of drivers.

If you have been harmed in a distracted driving accident, contact our St. Louis car accident lawyers at Meyerkord, Meyerkord & Kurth today! We’re available 24/7.

Different Types of Distracted Driving

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 3,154 people were killed in 2013 due to car accidents involving a distracted driver.

Many distracted drivers participate in the following:

  • Drinking
  • Eating
  • Talking to passengers
  • Manipulating cellphones
  • Texting
  • Talking on the phone
  • Watching videos/movies
  • Using maps

There are three types of distraction that can avert a driver's attention from the road.

Below is a list of the different classifications of distracted driving followed by brief descriptions of each:

  • Visual distractions: This type of distracted driving involves any activity that removes a person’s eyes from the road.
  • Manual distractions: This type of distracted driving involves any activity that removes a person’s hands from the steering wheel.
  • Cognitive distractions: This type of distracted driving involves any activity that removes a person’s thought-process and mind from the road and driving conditions.
