There are three kinds of distracted drivers that put others at risk on the roads. The three types include manual, visual and cognitive distractions. If you're injured in an accident, it's possible that one of these kinds of distractions was the cause.
With cognitive distractions, a driver isn't focused on driving because he or she's doing something else that is mentally distracting. For instance, the driver may be talking to someone next to him or her in the passenger seat or be deep in thought over family issues or other important thoughts. Listening to the radio can be a form of cognitive distraction as well.
