Who caused your car accident in City of Edinburgh?

This is a very vital piece of information because this is the person that you will be claiming from. In many car accidents it is the driver of another vehicle that caused the accident, although this is not always the case. Driver distraction is one of the key reasons that drivers cause accidents and it can be categorised very simply as:

  1. Visual distraction – something that you are looking at instead of or at the same time as looking at the road
  2. Auditory distraction – something that you are listening to at the same time as driving a vehicle
  3. Cognitive distraction – something that you are thinking about at the same time as driving a vehicle
  4. Biomechanical distraction – something that you are doing at the same time as driving a vehicle

So, what are the sources of driver distraction? Research has shown that the most common sources of driver distraction can be summarised as:

1. Eating or drinking something at the same time as driving

2. Looking at a person, object or event that is outside the car

3. Adjusting the in-car radio or CD

4. Other occupants of the vehicle (could be humans or animals, young or old)

5. A moving object in the vehicle (for example an insect)

6. Some action related to smoking

7. Talking or listening to a mobile phone (even hands free)

8. Dialling a number on a mobile phone

9. Using an electronic device or object that has been brought into the vehicle

10. Using an electronic device or controls that are fitted to the vehicle

11. Adjusting the climate or heating controls
