South Carolina Distracted Driving Accident Lawyers

Contact Our Legal Team Today for a Free Consultation

Distracted driving is on the rise in the United States. In South Carolina, distracted drivers cause countless accidents each year. In fact, according to certain accident reports, our state ranks in the top three for distracted driving collisions each year. Texting while driving is illegal in South Carolina, but there are currently no other laws regarding cellphone use while driving. Additionally, cellphone use represents just one form of distracted driving; there are many other things that can distract a driver from the road in front of them.

Distracted driving occurs anytime a driver’s attention is diverted away from the task of driving. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are three main types of distractions:

  • Visual, in which you take your eyes off the road
  • Physical, in terms of taking your hands off the wheel
  • Cognitive, where your mind wanders and you’re not paying attention

Anastopoulo Law Firm represents victims of distracted driving throughout the state. Our experienced legal team is here to answer your questions and address any concerns you may have during the legal process. Reach out to our distracted driving accident attorneys in South Carolina today if you were injured by a careless driver.

Examples of Distracted Driving

Generally speaking, there are three categories of distracted driving: visual distraction, manual distraction, and cognitive distraction. As the name implies, visual distraction occurs when a driver removes his or her eyes from the road. Manual distraction, on the other hand, occurs when a driver takes one or both hands off the steering wheel. Arguably the most difficult to prove (but no less dangerous than any other form of distraction), cognitive distraction takes place when a driver is mentally distracted or is simply not paying attention.

Some common examples of distracted driving include:

  • Reading or sending a text message
  • Talking on or using a cellphone
  • Recording or watching a video
  • Using a GPS or navigation device
  • Reaching for something on the floor of the car
  • Turning around to help a child in the backseat
  • Looking down to change the radio station
  • “Rubbernecking,” or looking at a roadside incident/accident
  • Talking to a passenger in the vehicle
  • Applying makeup
  • Eating or drinking
  • Daydreaming

Any time an individual drives while distracted, he or she is acting negligently. At Anastopoulo Law Firm we believe that negligent drivers should be held accountable when their carelessness results in severe bodily harm or the death of another person.
