Chicago Distrated Driving Causing Car Accidents

Compassionate Chicago Accident Attorneys Advocate for Your Rights Against Distracted Drivers

Skilled representation for victims of distracted drivers across Illinois

In the age of information, our devices have become extensions of ourselves. Unfortunately, some individuals don’t recognize that there is a time for everything, and driving is definitely not the proper time to text a message. While the most common form of distraction is cell phones, anything that draws a driver’s attention from the road can lead to an accident. When a driver takes their eyes or their concentration off the road for any reason, even for just a second, that is time they are not paying attention to their surroundings and accidents can occur. Distracted driving is a major problem on the roadways today, leading to far too many serious and fatal injuries.

We have a proven history of advocacy for injury victims throughout Cook, Lake, DuPage, Kane, and Will Counties.

What can cause distraction while driving?

According to, more than 3,000 people were killed as a result of distracted driving accidents in 2014, along with more than 430,000 injuries. Some of the most common distracting behaviors include:

  • Text messaging

  • Accessing a navigation system
  • Using a phone to access information
  • Watching videos
