Insurance Company Report Confirms Distracted Driver Concerns
Date:4/11/2013

(PRWEB) April 11, 2013

A report released by the Erie Insurance Group of Erie, Pennsylvania and reported by the Bloomberg News on April 5, 2013 compiled statistics from national crash data from the years 2010 and 2011. The data, which came from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Fatality Analysis Reporting System, indicated that in one out of every ten car accidents that involved a fatality was attributed to driver distraction. In some cases that distraction was caused by text messaging, using the internet, or eating, but in over sixty percent of the occurrences the driver reported having been “lost in thought”, or daydreaming. Though the use of text-messaging has been generating a great deal of attention and concern, less than fifteen percent of car accidents involving a death were attributed to this particular distraction.

Distracted Driving Kills

Houston Car Crash Attorney Paul Danziger of Danziger & De Llano, a liability and personal injury firm based in the Houston area, says that the Erie Insurance Group report mirrors the firm’s experience with their clients. “In more cases than not we have found that the defendants in our Houston car accident cases have been distracted in one way or another. Though it is very difficult to get a defendant to admit to having been daydreaming, the evidence that we’ve been able to gather and that our expert witnesses have interpreted has pointed to their minds not having been on the most important task at hand, which was driving safely.” Danziger points to recommendations released by AAA’s Foundation for Traffic Safety'/>"/>
