Experienced Legal Help For People Injured In Distracted Driving Accidents

Alabama does have a law prohibiting drivers from texting while driving. While it is still legal for drivers to talk on cellphones while on the road, this does not mean that drivers cannot be found negligent if they cause a crash that injures other people.

We have experience uncovering such evidence and when necessary can obtain call and text message records to strengthen a client’s case. You or your loved one may be able to collect the following types of compensation if your accident was caused by negligence:

  • Medical costs
  • Physical and mental pain and suffering
  • Lost wages and decreased earning capacity
  • Permanent impairment and disfigurement
  • Vocational impairment and wage loss
