Texting and Driving Accidents
Hurt in an Alabama car wreck? Our attorneys can help
It’s well-known that texting while driving is dangerous. That’s why it’s banned in many states, including Alabama. But some drivers still text while driving, and too often it leads to car accidents that leave people seriously injured. Recovering compensation in these types of accidents can be difficult, however.
A driver may deny texting while driving or even try to pin the blame on you. Insurance companies are always looking for ways to pay you as little as possible, and they may challenge your claim. The car accident attorneys at Dean Waite & Associates, LLC know how to overcome these challenges to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Texting while driving is dangerous because it takes the driver’s attention away from the road. Some drivers will say they only looked away for a few seconds. But that is more than enough time to cause an accident. While a driver is looking at a phone, the car ahead can stop suddenly, or another vehicle can make a turn.
