Far too many drivers use their cars as places to multitask. Whether that means they are texting while driving, talking on their cell phone, or entering an address into their GPS unit, any task that takes their attention away from driving can be considered a distraction. When someone is injured by a distracted driver, he or she can seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses.
