For example, in the U.S. In 2013, 3,154 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers, and approximately 424,000 people were injured.
The Brett McCandlis Brown attorneys and legal team have spent a vast amount of time helping clients deal with the aftermath of a serious distracted-driving crash, and we’ve seen how these collisions can destroy lives.
The most common causes of distracted-driving crashes include:
- Using a cell phone or smartphone
- Eating and drinking
- Talking to passengers
- Reading, including maps
- Using a navigation system

These simple activities, harmless usually, become incredibly dangerous while driving.
