Distracted Driving Lawsuits
It seems pretty simple — when you are driving, you should be focused on driving. However, many people drive while doing other things, including talk on the phone, text, eat, attend to children in the back seat, scroll through social media websites, apply makeup and perform other tasks that should wait until they are no longer in their car.
When a driver takes his or her eyes off the road or focuses on something other than driving, innocent motorists can be seriously injured or killed. One split second of distraction can change someone’s life forever.

Texting While Driving Is Against the Law, But Many People Still Do It
We have been helping injured motorists since 1972. Some of the causes of
car accidents have changed over the years, including the use of cellphones while driving. Our firm stays up-to-date on changes to driving laws as well as current on the prominent causes of accidents. In Alabama, all drivers regardless of age and driving experience are prohibited from texting while driving. Further, some younger drivers are banned from using their cellphones while driving. The laws are not always followed, and it is not uncommon for people to text while driving.
With our knowledge of cellphone law, texting while driving law and personal injury law, we can bring forward strong claims on behalf of our injured clients.
Our lawyers seek fair compensation on behalf of clients who have sustained serious injuries and those who have
lost loved ones due to distracted driving. We can gather crucial information about the accident, determine the responsible party and handle all interactions with the insurance company. We stand up for your rights and strive to hold negligent parties accountable for their harmful actions.
We handle all types of distracted driving accidents, including those that occurred for reasons other than cellphone use.
