People today are multitasking at an ever-increasing rate. Unfortunately, multi-tasking while driving often leads to car crashes. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2012, 10% of all highway deaths were caused by, or contributed to by, distracted driving – and that does not include non-fatal crashes.
Attorney Scott Goldberg is very active in this growing problem. Through the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys, Attorney Scott Goldberg supports the End Distracted Driving campaign, www.enddd.com. The organization notes that some of the most common causes of distracted driving are: talking on a cell phone, texting, and eating. Of course, there are other factors such as reading, putting on make-up, or adjusting the sound or navigation system.
However, these activities do not excuse someone for driving while distracted; one person is not allowed to put another person’s life or health at risk because he or she is driving while distracted. One of the most effective ways to reduce distracted driving is to hold people who cause distracted driving crashes responsible for their actions. Long before the public began paying attention to distracted driving, The Law Firm of Scott D. Goldberg successfully represented passengers involved in distracted driving crashes, and Attorney Goldberg remains committed to holding accountable those who cause driving-distracted crashes.
