Touchscreen Devices and Driving
Touchscreen devices have become increasingly popular for a number of different uses. Items with touchscreens, such as cell phones, mp3 players, and computers have become much more common as they are typically considered easier to use than other software. However, using a touchscreen can be very dangerous if done while driving a vehicle because these devices require visual commitment as well as manual commitment.
Because of the visual, manual, and cognitive distraction, drivers who use touchscreen devices put other motorists in harm’s way. If you or someone you know was injured in a car accident because of another driver’s reckless or distracted driving, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

- Aggressive driving
- Disregard for traffic laws
- Changing lanes without looking
- Failure to use turn signals
- Inability to react to changing road conditions
Distracted driving has obvious dangers associated with it, and it is important to avoid other drivers on the road who are exhibiting dangerous driving behaviors.
