In the digital era, there are many different ways that life has changed. From online shopping to connecting with old friends through social media, technology has brought a number of benefits. Live streaming, where people record themselves and broadcast video to an audience in real time, has become increasingly popular. Some people live stream themselves playing video games, while others may record themselves while they do certain real-life activities, such as driving a vehicle. Unfortunately, this can be incredibly risky and has resulted in a number of accidents in recent years, including some which have proven fatal.
When a driver is recording themselves while behind the wheel, they may be interacting with a live audience, which can be a major source of distraction. Moreover, they may take their hands off of the wheel to use equipment, such as adjust a video camera. Mentally, a driver may be too focused on their audience and recording themselves when they should be paying attention to the road. Moreover, those who record themselves via live streams are not always popular or broadcasting to the general public. For example, someone may be streaming themselves in front of a small audience that consists of a few friends.
If a driver struck you and they were live streaming or distracted by any other factor, you may want to take legal action to pursue compensation that will help you recover from the auto crash. Drivers who put the lives of others at risk due to carelessness must be held responsible.
