Salina Kansas Distracted Driving Personal Injury Attorneys Fight for Those Injured by Distracted Driving
We hold distracted drivers liable for the damages their recklessness has caused.
With eyes frequently checking or glued to our phones, distracted driving is a bigger problem than ever. It’s epidemic. In Kansas, use of cellphones by those drivers with learner’s permits or intermediate licenses is prohibited. Additionally, all drivers are banned from texting while driving. These are primary laws which means a law enforcement officer can pull you over if they suspect a violation is in progress. Despite this, there are staggering statistics tracking the injuries caused by distracted driving. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1,161 people are injured in car crashes involving distracted drivers each day. Of these crashes, it is further estimated that eight (8) fatalities will result.

How do you prove that the distracted driver was at fault for the accident?
While an increasing number of accidents are caused by distracted drivers, it can be difficult to prove that a driver was distracted when they caused a crash. Evidence of distraction can help secure or increase the compensation you receive if injured in this type of crash. Texting while driving is often cited in cases of distracted driving, but other distractions include:
- GPS devices or radio
- Makeup application
- Eating or drinking
- Internet use
- Interacting with other passengers in the car
Make sure you do everything you can to gather evidence of the distraction after the crash. This can involve:
- Getting statements and contact information from witnesses
- Taking pictures at the scene
- Making sure your suspicions of distracted driving end up in the police report
