Wearing Headphones While Driving
In this age of personal, portable media, many drivers simply do not know when to unplug and pay attention to the road. Drivers who are wearing headphones or earphones may be distracted by their media device, focusing on choosing songs or following the plot line of an audio book rather than paying attention to the road. Having headphones distracts drivers from the dynamic environment around them, and this can cause serious accidents.
If a distracted, reckless driver has injured you or a loved one, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Call the Green Bay reckless driving accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. to find out more about how we can help. Our number is 800-242-2874.
Injuries from Reckless Drivers
A driver who is plugged into headphones or earphones is a driver at risk of reckless driving. Drivers may become distracted by the music or recording that they are hearing. They may not hear the sounds of emergency sirens or honking car horns warning them of an impending collision. There are serious consequences of this reckless driving, such as accidents causing injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Spinal Damage
- Brain trauma
Any of these could result from poor driving by a distracted driver. Fortunately, people injured by distracted and reckless drivers often have legal options. Financial compensation from the driver or the drivers’ insurance company can help pay for your medical expenses, pain and suffering damages, and even loss of employment due to injury.
