Distracted Driving is a major cause of traffic accidents and fatalities—and it is getting worse. Apps that allow people to show how fast they are driving and others that request information about traffic jams are just a few of the newer apps that are being used and causing serious accidents and deaths. But distracted driving is not due entirely to apps, or phones—personal grooming, eating and drinking, and many other factors constitute distracted driving, and all are dangerous. Anyone who handles criminal matters, personal injury cases, and/or traffic matters needs to know the latest information on how these cases are being handled if they are going to be able to represent their clients properly. Learn about how these cases are being charged and prosecuted by district attorneys’ offices and defended in the criminal courts, as well as how they are being brought and defended in civil proceedings. Explore an overview of the applicable statutory law and developing case law, and gain invaluable practical information from attorneys who are on the cutting edge of this developing area of practice.
