There has been a big increase in car accidents over the past several years, and the New York Times thinks they have determined one big reason why so many more people are dying in car accidents: apps. There are a huge number of apps specifically designed to be used in cars now. People also use lots of different apps, including games and social networking applications, while they are driving. As these motorists use their phones and electronic devices to manipulate apps, they take their focus off the road. This leads to auto accidents.
If a driver is using an app while behind the wheel, the motorist should be held legally responsible for damages if he causes a crash to happen. An Atlanta distracted driving accident lawyer can provide representation to victims, and to surviving family members of victims of fatal crashes, in pursuing a claim for compensation after a collision occurs.
