New York Distracted Driving Accidents Attorney
Distracted driving results in thousands of fatalities and hundreds of thousands of injuries across the country every year. While published statistics on the rate of distracted driving show a massive problem, many safety experts believe that crashes caused by drivers who are distracted by a cell phone, in-vehicle entertainment system, or other electronic device are far higher than reported due to the difficulty in identifying when a distraction has played a role in a crash.

Types of crashes associated with distractions are on the rise
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that, in 2015, almost 3,500 people were killed in accidents caused by distracted drivers, and another 391,000 were injured in such crashes. Notwithstanding these tragic rates, many safety experts assert that an even greater share of all accidents is caused by distracted drivers, but that drivers or witnesses simply don’t report the role that the distraction played in the crash.
One fact that these experts point to is that accidents which seem to be caused by distracted drivers have risen in frequency. For example, fatalities among pedestrians have risen by over 20% in recent years, and cyclists and motorcyclists are also dying at a higher rate. When distracted drivers only briefly glance up from their phones while driving, experts theorize, they fail to notice smaller objects such as people or bikes, and are more likely to hit them.
