Did you know that distracted drivers are three times more likely to be involved in a car accident than attentive drivers? In fact, an estimated 20% to 30% of all car accidents in Canada are believed to be caused by distracted driving. However, one of the most dangerous distractions is texting: studies show that drivers who engage in text messaging while driving are 23 times more likely to be involved in an accident than those who did not. Regardless of the cause, however, car accidents have the potential to cause a number of severe injuries that can change the lives of those they affect. Therefore, if you were injured in a car accident, it may be worthwhile to check your disability claims status to see if you qualify for accident benefits. If so, you may have cause to file a personal injury claim.
