Arizona Distracted Driving Law
Distracted driving is a serious hazard that can result in deadly consequences, and Arizona has taken steps to promote public safety by cracking down on distracted driving accidents. The state of Arizona enacted a distracted driving law which prohibits individuals from operating motor vehicles while distracted by any device or activity that takes their focus off the road. This includes participating in any activity that takes their attention away from their surroundings.
We represent victims of accidents caused by driver distractions such as:
- Talking or texting on a cell phone
- Interacting with other people in the vehicle
- Eating or drinking while behind the wheel
- Driving while under the influence (DUI)
- Driving while tired or fatigued
Penalties for distracted driving include fines up to $500 and potential jail time depending on the severity of the offense. Law enforcement officials also have the right to revoke an individual's license if they are found to be in violation of distracted driving laws. With its strict distracted driving laws, Arizona is working to reduce distracted driving-related accidents and keep its roads safer for everyday motorists.
How We’ve Helped Victims of Distracted Driving Accidents
After carefully paying attention to posted crossing signs, a local student proceeded to use the crosswalk in front of his school. Unfortunately, what he didn't see – and couldn't have predicted – was an older student heading his way. The distracted driver was a newly licensed teen who was paying more attention to her cell phone than the road.
She didn't stop for a student in the crosswalk and, when she hit him, she caused injuries that made a permanent impact on his life. We represented the student who was hit and ultimately helped him collect compensation. This compensation helped him pay his medical bills, afford physical therapy, and return to his normal activities.
