Common Types of Driver Distractions
There is much more that can distract a driver than a cell phone. In fact, Hawaii law defines a distraction as “anything that takes a driver’s eyes off the road (visual distraction), mind off the road (cognitive distraction), or hands off the wheel (manual distraction).”
Common examples of distracted driving in Hawaii include:
- Eating and drinking
- Applying makeup
- Being lost in thought
- Talking with passengers
- Using GPS navigation
- Attending to children
- Reaching for items in the vehicle
- Adjusting audio or climate control
No matter how the at-fault driver was distracted, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. However, it is often not easy to prove that a driver was distracted at the time of the crash. You need a skilled car accident lawyer who knows how to build a solid case on your behalf. At the Law Office of Jon S. Jacobs, LLLC, that is exactly the type of legal advocate you can find. Mr. Jacobs works tirelessly for each of our clients to ensure they get the results they deserve.

Distracted driving is the cause of approximately 8.5% of all fatal car crashes in the U.S. Many of these accidents are caused by drivers who fail to pay attention to the road because they are glued to the screen of their mobile devices. As the availability and use of cell phones grow, the number of accidents related to texting and driving continues to increase, despite Hawaii’s anti-cell phone laws.
Although you cannot do anything to reverse the driver’s decision to text while driving, which led to your crash, you can take action to pursue the compensation you deserve. Our personal injury lawyer is here to guide you through the process of getting money to help pay for your monetary losses, such as medical expenses and lost wages, and non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering.
Whether you were rear-ended, sideswiped, or hit head-on, being in a car accident is a terrifying experience. Depending on the severity of your injuries, your life could be significantly impacted. Our Honolulu distracted driver accident attorney is here to handle all aspects of your claim for compensation.
