Mobile Games and Car Accidents

Driving is always a difficult task that requires a lot of focus. It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced driver or not, your hands should be on the wheel at all times to ensure your safety, as well as the safety of everyone else on the road. Sadly, with the rising popularity of mobile smartphones and mobile gaming, driving safely doesn’t look like a priority anymore. 

Despite all the accidents we frequently see, drivers continue to avoid the rules regarding smartphone use while driving. Taking your eyes off the road used to be scary, but not completing your daily quests on your favorite mobile games looks even scarier to most people nowadays.

Why Gaming on Your Mobile Device Is Dangerous

Mobile usage while driving has become one of the most common causes of distracted driving and car crashes. Playing games makes everything even worse, as you’ll be taking your hands off the wheel and your eyes off the road completely, especially if you need to use both hands to play. Your attention will be shifted to something that won’t make you focus on the road at all. 

All these actions are the perfect recipe for a dangerous car crash. When drivers use their cellphones the risk of an automobile crash resulting in hospitalization is four times higher than when not gaming on a cell phone. Mobile distraction rates are alarmingly high, to the point that most states are starting to consider a ban on every mobile device that’s not hands-free.

The Results of Being in a Car Accident

Finding yourself as the victim of a car accident is obviously not a fun experience, especially if the person who hurt you was playing games on his mobile device. You may feel a lot of pain, you’ll most certainly be shocked, and even if you were lucky and don’t have a lot of injuries, your car will probably find itself in a very bad state. 

The first thing you should do if you’re not seriously hurt is trying to gather all the information you need. Finding yourself in a car accident is a stressful situation and staying calm is not easy, but you need to take the best course of action so your insurance company can take care of the damage, economically speaking. Important information includes a lot of personal data, like phone numbers, car registration details, their license number, their insurance information and so on. 

If you were not at fault, choose your words very carefully because you never know what might happen later during an insurance claim. Besides, trying to solve the entire situation by yourself is not going to be easy. That’s why you should speak with a car accident attorney as soon as possible. They will help you find the compensation you seek and will know how to handle the situation much better than a person who’s still in shock and doesn’t know how to feel after being in a car accident and seeing their vehicle get destroyed. 

If you find yourself in a situation where it’s not easy to identify the liable party, your attorney will know what’s the best course of action and will be able to receive all the information he needs, even if multiple drivers have fled the scene. Nobody should skip this step, as it is fundamental. The right attorney will solve everything quickly regardless of fault, especially if you find yourself in a no-fault state. 

Insurance companies will be even happier to help you with the right attorney and they won’t be able to ignore your claim. Most people downplay the importance of having the right attorney by your side, but you’ll feel much better with someone who’s there to protect your interests and allow you to be compensated for your losses.
