The Dangers of Distracted Driving

Many of us are guilty of multitasking while engaging in other activities. However, not paying attention to what is going on around you, especially when you are behind the wheel of a vehicle, can be very dangerous. In an effort to significantly reduce distracted driving accidents, the state of Idaho and the majority of states have enacted laws prohibiting drivers from texting and driving. Drivers who engage in this type of behavior can be held responsible for any injuries they cause.

Common causes of distracted driving include:

  • Talking or texting on the cellphone
  • Talking to passengers
  • Eating or drinking
  • Grooming
  • Changing radio stations
  • Spacing out
  • Constantly looking at the GPS or navigation system

What Damages Can Be Claimed In A Distracted Driving Accident Case?

In a distracted driving accident case in Idaho, several types of damages can be claimed to compensate for the various losses and injuries sustained. Understanding these potential damages is crucial for ensuring that you receive full and fair compensation for your suffering.

Generally, you can seek economic damages to cover specific financial losses resulting from the accident. These damages encompass medical expenses, including hospital bills, prescription medications, and any needed rehabilitation or therapy. If the accident has affected your capacity to work, you can also claim lost wages, whether the impact is temporary or permanent. Furthermore, if your vehicle or other property suffered damage in the accident, the costs of repair or replacement can be included in your claim.

Non-economic damages are equally important and pertain to intangible losses. These can encompass pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and any physical disfigurement or impairment caused by the accident. Determining the value of non-economic damages can be challenging, making it crucial to consult with seasoned distracted driving accident lawyers in Pocatello. These professionals can accurately assess these losses and ensure they are appropriately compensated.

In some cases, punitive damages may be awarded if the distracted driver's behavior was particularly reckless or egregious. These damages are intended to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar conduct in the future.
