Getting help when you are hurt by a suspected distracted driver

A previous post here discussed the dangers that distracted driving presents on the highways and roads of Camden County and throughout both the greater Philadelphia area and New Jersey. Of course, very few motorists these days are going to come out and admit, after causing an injury in an accident, that they were using their phone, eating, tuning the radio or otherwise not watching the road at the time of an accident. Many do so to stay out of trouble since they do not want a ticket, a criminal charge or even higher insurance premiums.

Texting and driving, other distractions cause many car accidents

Distracted driving is a problem in New Jersey and every other state in the country.

Distractions come in many forms, including but not limited to texting and driving, talking on a cellphone while driving, eating and drinking, speaking with passengers, attending to personal grooming and other activities.
