Distracted Driving Accidents in VA
Hire Richmond Auto Accident Lawyers With Proven Results
Distracted driving is a leading factor in motor vehicle accidents. In fact, distracted drivers have been shown to have slower reaction times than a drunk driver. In response to this epidemic, many states, including Virginia, have implemented a law prohibiting the use of a cell phone to text while on the road.
While technology makes up a large percentage of distractions in distracted driving cases, it is not the only culprit. At Cantor Stoneburner Ford Grana & Buckner, we believe that you shouldn’t have to pay for your injuries due to another individual’s recklessness—that’s been our stance since 1979.

What Is Distracted Driving?
Distracted driving is essentially anything that takes your eyes or mind off of the road and your surroundings. Distracted drivers are many times more likely to end up in a crash as a result of their negligence and more likely to injure another individual in the process.
Take a look at different types of distracted driving:
- Using a cell phone
- Eating or drinking
- Talking to passengers
- Putting on makeup
- Using a GPS
- Fiddling with the radio
Due to the high speeds at which cars travel, it is unsafe for a driver to take his or her eyes off of the road even for a moment. Just two seconds of distraction at 55 mph is enough time to cover half a football field of road and potentially rear end another car or injure a motorcyclist or pedestrian.
