Car Accidents From Distracted Driving

Representing clients injured by distracted drivers.

Today, we have a greater access to technology than ever before. With distractions such as phone calls, emails, text messages and Social Media at our fingertips, it can be difficult to put down our cell phone or mobile devices while driving. Unfortunately, Distracted Driving remains a very serious and widespread problem on our Province’s roads and highways. Police are responding to more accidents than ever before involving motorists that were texting, making phone calls or otherwise not paying attention while behind the wheel.

Whether they are texting, emailing, Tweeting, or posting on Facebook, drivers everywhere become distracted by their cell phones and put their lives and the lives of others at risk every day.

Tragically, far too many motorist deaths and serious injuries are caused by drivers that are not paying attention to the road. The Ontario Annual Road Safety Report indicated that distracted driving accounted for about 18% of total fatalities on our Province’s roads and highways, surpassing speed-related collisions, motorcyclist fatalities and other dangerous behaviors. 86 Ontario motorists lost their lives in accidents involving a distracted driver in 2014.

Distracted Drivers are up to 3 times more likely to be involved in a traffic accident than drivers that are paying attention to the road. At Cariati Law, we want to remind all drivers to keep your phone in your pocket, bag or glove compartment until you arrive safely at your destination.
