North Alabama Distracted Driving Accident Attorneys
Any time that a driver takes his or her focus off the road for longer than a period of a few seconds, it can be easy for the driver to lose control of the vehicle. Distractions on the road, such as talking on a cellphone or texting while driving, can be very dangerous and can easily result in an accident with serious injuries. In fact, talking on a cellphone while driving can pose the same type of risk as driving with a .08 blood alcohol content.
Distracted driving has become one of the leading causes of auto accidents in Alabama and throughout the United States. Johnston, Moore & Thompson, an established and respected law firm in Huntsville, is a leader in the fight for clients throughout North Alabama who have been injured in distracted driving accidents. In more than 70 years, our lawyers have helped clients secure significant settlements and verdicts in all types of motor vehicle accidents and personal injury claims.
Huntsville Texting Accident Attorneys
When a person is texting or performing other actions on a cellphone, that driver's eyes aren't on the road and aren't searching for danger or potential problems. Instead, the driver's eyes are cast downward and are not paying attention.
This lack of attention can cause the car to drift into another lane, cross into oncoming traffic, rear end a stopped vehicle and create other types of collisions. If you have been injured in an accident involving texting and cellphone use while driving, you may be entitled to damages for your injuries that include medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
