Claims for Distracted Driving Injuries in Alabama
Distracted driving is the practice of performing actions that take your attention away from the road while driving. Common examples of distracted driving include:
- Talking on a cell phone
- Talking to passengers
- Using a GPS
- Adjusting dashboard controls
- Reading (printed directions, for example)
- Grooming (brushing your hair, etc.)
At Mike Slocumb Law Firm, we believe that you shouldn't have to face the consequences of another person's negligent or careless actions. Obtaining financial compensation after being injured in a distracted driving accident can be a complex endeavor. Negligent drivers often deny responsibility, and proving that a driver was distracted can present challenges. Insurance companies are primarily concerned with safeguarding their profits and will attempt to pay as little as possible or even nothing at all if given the chance.
