Accidents Caused by Texting While Driving: Andalusia Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help, Andalusia, Alabama

Texting while driving causes automobile accidents, which can lead to injuries and even death. Since 2012, it’s against the law in Alabama to text while driving. The personal injury lawyers at Jones & Jones PC Attys at Law, in Andalusia, AL, represent the victims of distracted driver accidents, including the victims of crashes that are due to texting.

It takes just a few seconds for a texting driver to lose control of a motor vehicle and cause a serious or fatal accident. Texting drivers endanger everyone in their vehicles and in nearby vehicles, as well as pedestrians and property. Besides suffering personal physical injuries, victims of a crash caused by texting and driving suffer property damage, incur medical expenses, and lose income. Damaging effects of a crash, including pain and suffering, may be temporary or permanent.

The law can compensate injured individuals for their losses by requiring the payment of money damages. The role of a personal injury lawyer is to provide accident victims with the legal help they need to recover the maximum amount available from auto insurance policies and other sources. The personal injury lawyers at Jones & Jones PC Attys at Law are experienced in negotiating car accident settlements in cases that result from distracted driving collisions.

In 2013, distracted driving collisions led to more than 3,100 deaths and approximately 424,000 injuries, reports the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
