Car accident in Leven


If you have just been involved in a car accident in Leven that was not your own fault then there is a fair chance that the accident was caused by another driver being distracted. This is when the driver is not fully concentrating on driving their vehicle – the result may have been that they collided with your car!

Many people call Accident Advice Helpline because they have just had a car accident in Leven – they want to make a personal injury claim from the person who caused the accident. They want a sum of money to make up for the injury and to compensate for the money that they have lost because they are injured. Accident Advice Helpline is a legal firm of personal injury lawyers who always get the highest levels of compensation for their clients.

If you think that the other driver was distracted then you should tell the advisers at Accident Advice Helpline. But how much do you know about driver distraction and its role in road traffic accidents?

Did driver distraction play a role in your car accident in Leven?

Your car accident in Broxburn could have been caused by any of the four following types of driver distraction:

  1. Visual distraction – this is when something that the driver sees or that comes into their line of vision distracts them from driving. It could even be something as simple as a sticker on the windscreen or it could be something quite complicated that causes the driver to take their eyes off the road for an extended period of time. Sometimes a driver appears to be looking but because they are distracted they may not actually ‘see’  what is on the road and may not recognise a hazard until it is too late.
  2. Auditory distraction – this is when a driver momentarily or continually focuses their attention on sounds or auditory signals. This could easily be a conversation with a passenger or a baby crying but the most common example is having a conversation on a mobile phone.
  3. Physical distraction – this occurs when the driver takes one or both hands off the steering wheel to do something else. Taking your hands off the steering wheel to change gears is, of course, acceptable but it should be placed back on the steering wheel immediately afterwards. Taking both hands off the steering wheel to open a sweet would not be acceptable!
  4. Cognitive distraction – this is when the driver is thinking about something else to such an extent that their reaction time is affected. Talking on a mobile phone is the obvious example but navigation systems and even having a conversation with a passenger can be enough.
