We have all been guilty of it. Straining our necks to see what is going on up ahead and trying to find out why traffic is at a standstill. The problem is sometimes our curiosity, also known as rubbernecking, can lead to disastrous results.
If you or someone you know has been injured by distracted driving, rest assured that our auto accident attorneys will work diligently to get you the compensation you deserve after an accident. Call 1-800-706-3000 to schedule a free consultation.
While rubbernecking is a natural tendency, it is dangerous because it takes a driver's attention from the road, which may result in another accident with severe injuries.
The next time youre passing an auto accident scene and feel the need to gawk, think about this:
Officials say rubbernecking is also a main cause of traffic pile-ups. If a rubbernecking driver causes another accident, that person is liable for any injuries or damage that occurs.
Also, a study conducted by Virginia Commonwealth University indicated that the act of rubbernecking was the main cause of accidents that involved distracted driving, and that statistic has not shifted much in the last decade.
If you have been involved in an auto accident caused by a distracted driver, you may be eligible to pursue legal recourse for your losses.
