If you have driven around Miami Lakes or South Florida, you have probably seen evidence of distracted driving: motorists staring off into space, reaching into the back seat when driving, or talking or texting instead of focusing on the road. Unfortunately, some drivers are reckless or negligent when they drive and as a result studies have shown that distracted driving is one of the leading causes of collisions.

Distracted drivers have poor motor control and can even fall asleep at the wheel. Distracted driving also paves the way for driving mistakes that can lead to a crash. There are many mistakes that distracted drivers can make that can lead to a traffic accident:
- They can hit a pedestrian because they did not see them
- They can run a red light or stop sign
- They can enter the oncoming lane because they do not notice that the car is drifting
- They can make an illegal turn
- They can make a lane change without checking to see that the lane is clear
- They can crash into the car in front of them because they don't notice the car was there
Distraction leads to pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, car accidents, truck accidents, and bicycle accidents in Miami Lakes and other communities. In many cases, those who are most vulnerable on the roads end up being most seriously injured. For example, motorcyclists pay the price when drivers and passenger cars are distracted. Unfortunately, because motorcyclists have so few layers of protection, they're more likely to sustain serious brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, amputations, and other permanent injuries. If you are motorcyclist, you have a right to expect others who share the road with you to drive correctly and safely. When they do not, you will want to consult with a personal injury attorney in Miami Lakes or your community if you have been injured in order to pursue justice in your case.
