Looking in the rearview mirror while driving

Sometimes, looking in your rearview mirror can help prevent a crash. For example, you may observe that a reckless driver is accelerating toward you at a high rate of speed and be able to avoid them, or you could use your rearview mirrors to ensure that there are no vehicles behind you before switching lanes. However, some drivers may actually increase the chances of a crash by looking in their rearview mirrors because they become distracted and take their eyes off of the road in front of them.

People may use their rearview mirrors inappropriately while driving for a variety of reasons. For example, someone may apply makeup or use their mirror to examine something on their face when they should be paying attention to the road. Or, drivers may use their rearview mirrors to see people who are riding in the back of the vehicle while they are carrying on a conversation. Unfortunately, this can increase the chances of a fatal accident that claims the innocent lives of those riding in other vehicles or results in numerous injuries.

If you were hit by a distracted driver, it can be difficult to prove that their attention was diverted at the time of the accident. However, if you find out that they were distracted, you should be sure to make note of this very important detail, especially if you decide to file a lawsuit. Distracted drivers have claimed many lives in recent years and it is important for victims who are struggling with injuries to recover.
