Many motor vehicle accidents in Alabama are caused by a driver who was distracted at the time of the collision. One common cause of these types of accidents is texting while driving. If you are seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident because someone else decided to focus more on a cell phone than on the road, grounds for a lawsuit likely exist.
Distracted driving is a major cause of crashes, not only in Alabama but all over the United States. Driving while distracted may involve texting or simply communicating on a mobile phone. Using a mobile phone while operating a vehicle can actually be just as risky as navigating a car with a blood alcohol level higher than the law permits.
