Police try but cannot stop all distracted driving accidents

Over Labor Day weekend, police in Maryland were out in force looking for distracted drivers. Their goal was to prevent distracted driving-related accidents and to make those who were not paying attention aware of the seriousness of their actions. Distracted driving is a big problem in this state, and law enforcement officials are doing what they can to address it. Unfortunately, they cannot be everywhere at all times, so distracted driving-related accidents will continue to happen until all drivers choose to pay full attention when behind the wheel.

Police departments across the state chose Labor Day weekend to increase patrols due to the number of drivers expected to be out on the roads for the holiday. This type of thing actually happens around most major holidays and even a few random times throughout the year. It is unclear how many drivers were stopped, ticketed and/or arrested over Labor Day weekend.

Thanks to the efforts of law enforcement, numerous accidents were likely prevented over the holiday. Still, despite those efforts, there are likely those who suffered injuries or lost loved ones due to the actions of distracted drivers. Victims or -- in the event of fatality -- their surviving family members may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses by filing civil claims against those individuals believed responsible.

The state of Maryland does not take driver negligence lightly. Victims of distracted driving-related accidents, or the loved ones of deceased victims, who wish to pursue legal claims in an effort to seek relief may do so, and do so successfully, as long as they file their claims within the allotted time frame. There is a statute of limitations on such matters, so waiting too long to file could result in victims losing out on compensation possibly available to them. Those who are interested in seeking maximum relief for their losses can turn to an experienced attorney for assistance in doing so.
