Understanding the Severity of Accidents Like Yours
Did you know that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that when a person takes their eyes off the road for a few seconds, it sends a car the length of a football field if they are driving at 55 mph? Drivers may think they are only glancing for a moment, but while speeding along, a lot can transpire.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that 2,841 people were killed due to distracted driving in 2018. Many of these were due to texting and driving and harmed drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists alike.
