Distracted Driving Lawyers

Distracted driving is a top cause of car accidents in Houston. Although most people associate distracted driving with cellular devices, there are a variety of reasons for distracted driving and all of them are dangerous. Common types of distracted driving include:

  • Driving drowsy
  • Listening to something distracting
  • Eating while driving
  • Adjusting car controls while driving
  • Texting while driving
