There’s a reason why distracted driving is illegal and dangerous. Taking your attention away from the road, even for less than a second, can lead to substantial injuries and damages. It can also have a devastating impact on you or others.
Despite the level of seriousness, many drivers still operate their vehicles surrounded by distractions. Martinez, Hart, Thompson & Sanchez, P.C. encourages motorists throughout New Mexico to remain alert and aware when behind the wheel. In the event you cross paths with a distracted driver and experience property damage or injuries, we also offer dependable legal support to help you navigate your personal injury case.

There are actually three different types of distracted driving behaviors, as explained here:
While you can’t stop other motorists from driving distracted, you can take steps to limit the behaviors in your own vehicle. Turn your mobile device off and store it far away from you when driving. If you’re using a GPS, set the destination before leaving home. Also, be careful when changing the radio station or talking to passengers. If you’re traveling with young kids or pets, make sure they’re properly secured in the back seat before heading out.
If you’ve filed a claim with your insurance company only to have it denied, a car accident attorney can help you dispute your insurer. A lawyer can also help if the amount of compensation you’re requesting is disputed or if there is a question about who was at fault.
