Distracted driving has become one of the most common reasons accidents occur. This is when anything takes your attention off of the road. This includes cell phone usage, loud music, or distracting passengers. Distracted driving has become deadly.
The accident victims may choose to make a personal injury claim against the at fault driver. Filing a claim cannot erase the damage that was done, but it can help alleviate unexpected funeral costs, medical bills and provide compensation for pain and suffering.
