Victims of Distracted Driving
Distracted driving is responsible for causing car accidents that severely injure passengers and motorists. However, the deadly consequences of distracted driving stretch beyond the confines of motor vehicles, affecting pedestrians and cyclists, who can also suffer at the hands of distracted drivers.
Motor Vehicle Passengers
Distracted drivers are increasingly responsible for two deadly accident types: failure to yield and head-on collisions. Distracted drivers that fail to yield at a stop sign or red light can cause “angle accidents.”
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), these accidents are consistently responsible for a high number of fatalities. Head-on collisions have also been attributed to distracted drivers. Depending on the speed at which cars hit, these accidents can be devastating.
Failure-to-yield accidents and head-on collisions are not the only ways victims can suffer an injury at the hands of a distracted driver. If you survived an accident with a distracted driver, you may be severely injured and incapable of yet returning to life as normal.
Non-Motor Vehicle Passengers
Distracted drivers also pose an extreme risk of injury for pedestrians and bikers. Unfortunately, due to their vulnerability, pedestrians and bikers often suffer fatal injuries when hit by distracted drivers. Those who do survive frequently experience incapacitating injuries that require extensive medical care and physical therapy.

Medical Expenses and Lost Wages
If you were incapacitated in your accident or severely hurt, you may be unable to work. You might be looking at a lengthy recovery that will lead to more missed work and lost wages. If that is the case, you probably still require medical care but may already have medical expenses past due and piling up.
If you are finding it hard to make ends meet, you deserve justice and compensation. It is unfair that you experience financial suffering in addition to the physical pain and suffering your injury has caused. When you file a lawsuit against the driver responsible for your injury, you may be eligible to collect compensation for these expenses or economic losses.

Pain and Suffering
In addition to receiving compensation for the financial losses your injury has caused, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your pain and suffering. Being unable to work might mean lost wages, but it could also mean social isolation and loss of purpose. You may find it emotionally challenging to cope with the changes in your life.
You also could be experiencing severe physical pain. Compensation for these changes and a decreased quality of life may come in the form of a noneconomic damages award, which will be determined by a jury if your case goes to trial or in settlement negotiations if it does not.
If You Have Lost Someone to a Distracted Driving Accident
Perhaps you have lost someone in an accident with a distracted driver. If so, you deserve justice and compensation for any medical expenses you incurred, as well as for the emotional devastation you are experiencing.
In Arizona, according to Arizona Revised Statutes (ARS) § 12-612, victims may file a lawsuit for wrongful death when their loved one has been negligently fatally injured. A wrongful death lawsuit can recover damages for medical expenses and other financial losses. It can also recover damages for the emotional pain of losing a loved one.

No Limit on Damages
There is a cap on how much an individual can be compensated for their economic and noneconomic losses in some states.
According to Article II § 31, there is no limit on the damages an individual can receive in a personal injury or wrongful death cases. This means that when you file a lawsuit against the distracted driver who caused your accident, you may collect unlimited compensation for all your financial losses. You may also collect for your emotional and physical pain and suffering. This also applies to wrongful death lawsuits.
If you were severely injured in an accident with a distracted driver, you deserve justice, and a Mesa distracted driving accident lawyer may be able to help you get it. It is not fair that you should suffer such pain and loss through no fault of your own.
