Distracted driving can cause a driver to not see other

It can be difficult, at times, to determine the cause of a car collision until after the completion of an accident investigation. Although it might appear as though a driver acted responsibly by obeying the traffic laws, a thorough investigation by the police or by an attorney acting on behalf of a victim suffering a serious injury might disclose evidence to prove the person was a negligent driver.

A recent auto accident in which three vehicles were involved appears to have been caused by a driver who obeyed a stop sign. Unfortunately, the individual failed to yield to other traffic in the intersection as he drove away from the stop sign. The result was a three-car accident that sent three people requiring medical treatment to the hospital.

According to police, one of the drivers pulled away from a stop sign without maintaining a proper lookout for other vehicles in the intersection. The failure to yield the right of way, for which the driver received a traffic ticket, caused the car to be hit by another vehicle that was proceeding through the intersection. The vehicle that was hit was spun around before it hit a third vehicle that was stopped and waiting to enter the intersection.

There are many reasons why a driver might not observe other vehicles. Texting and driving, adjusting the radio or other forms of distracted driving can lead to an auto accident. A car accident victim might have the right to file a claim for compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and other damages caused by a negligent driver.

A good source of legal advice for someone who suffers a serious injury in a Macon, Georgia, car accident might be a personal injury attorney. An attorney could possibly answer questions and respond to concerns an accident victim might have about compensation.
